Everybody Reads 2012: Jim Lynch Reads from and Talks about Border Songs

Every year libraries on the Palouse sponsor a regional author. This year the book is Border Songs by Jim Lynch. Williamette Week noted of the book that it is “A fascinating look at the confluence of small-town life, the global drug trade and illegal immigration, and it places Jim Lynch at the forefront of Northwest writers to watch.” Lynch will be reading at the Holland and Terrell Libraries at noon on Tuesday November 13th in the Quiet Study Lounge. Please come, and tell your friends! More about the book and the rest of the Palouse-area library events can be found at

More Reviews:

“Wonderful…tender, sad and leavened with wit, Border Songs reads like something written by a more efficient Richard Russo.” — Ron Charles, book editor for The Washington Post

“Border Songs” is one of the more inventive and unique novels of recent years. Lynch’s dexterous handling of multiple voices and storylines makes Border Songs a book that goes by all too quickly.” — Rege Behe, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

“Lynch’s comic borderland is not only palpable, it is richly metaphoric. Comparisons with Ken Kesey and Tom Robbins are not only inevitable, they are welcome.” — The Globe and Mail (Canada)

“Lynch observes like a journalist and writes like a poet. … Brandon is one of the most remarkable characters created by a Northwest author in recent memory.” — Mary Ann Gwinn, Seattle Times book editor

“Enthralling … Lynch plays exquisitely with his theme of division and its consequences.” — Maclean’s (Canada)
