Author Event | Tracing the Desire Line by Melissa Matthewson

September 26, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Southern Oregon author Melissa Matthewson in conversation with OSU-Cascades professor Ellen Santasiero, as they explore Melissa’s new book, Tracing the Desire Line.
The book, as memoir-in-essays, follows the narrator’s journey as a pirate radio DJ, writer, mother, and organic farmer exploring identity, sexuality, and feminine desire through opening her marriage with her husband. The book looks closely at what happens when the narrator runs the edges of desire by questioning the nature of monogamy and freedom within a conventional marriage. Along the way, the book detours into memory and meditations on various subjects that frame the narrator’s story including music, radio, place, home, rule-breaking, freedom, religion, belonging, forgiveness, divorce, love, and wildness.
