Ursula K Le Guin Book Event!

09/28/2013 - 2:00pm

Join us for a very special appearance by science fiction superstar Ursula K Le Guin as part of the Puyallup Festival of Books! Le Guin will talk about her work and sign copies of her books. King's Books will be on hand selling booksl 

Ursula K. Le Guin is the author of more than one hundred short stories, two collections of essays, four volumes of poetry, and nineteen novels. Her best-known fantasy works, the Earthsea books, have sold millions of copies in America and England, and have been translated into sixteen languages. Her first major work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness, is considered epoch-making in the field because of its radical investigation of gender roles and its moral and literary complexity. Three of Le Guin's books have been finalists for the American Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, and among the many honors her writing has received are the National Book Award, five Hugo Awards, five Nebula Awards, the Kafka Prize, a Pushcart Prize, and the Harold D. Vursell Award of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
