Authors Out Loud: Kristen Millares Young

Join us for an evening with Kristen Millares Young, an award-winning Cuban American journalist and essayist whose debut novel, “Subduction,” was a finalist for two International Latino Book awards. Described as a lyric retelling of the troubled history of encounter in the Americas, Subduction follows a Latina anthropologist who, in fleeing her shattered marriage, takes refuge in Neah Bay, a whaling village on the jagged Pacific Coast. According to a review in Ms. Magazine, the novel is an “utterly unique and important [examination] of themes of love, intrusion, loss, community and trust, [all set] against a backdrop of the Makah reservation.” In addition to being named a staff pick by The Paris Review, “Subduction” won silver Nautilus and IPPY awards, and has received glowing reviews in The Seattle Times, Library Journal, The Washington Post, and Kirkus Reviews, among many others.
