Rhodes Scholar visits Winslow book shop to discuss new novel

Washington author, Yale University graduate and Oxford Rhodes Scholar Karl Marlantes will visit Eagle Harbor Book Company at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 18 to celebrate the release of his newest work, “Deep River.”

The author turns from war to tell a sweeping family saga inspired by his grandmother’s generation of Finns who immigrated to the logging communities of the Pacific Northwest at the turn of the century. The novel is an incredibly humane tale of courage, sacrifice, and reinvention in the face of political, economic, and natural forces much larger than the individual.

Readers will fall in love with protagonist Aino Koski, a strong independent woman and fiery political activist who champions the early labor movements when she joins the International Workers of the World.

Marlantes served as a Marine in Vietnam, where he was awarded the Navy Cross, the Bronze Star, two Navy Commendation Medals for valor, two Purple Hearts, and 10 Air Medals.

He is the bestselling author of “Matterhorn” and “What It Is Like to Go to War.”

He lives in rural Washington.
