Stories on Stage will host a free, live performance of an excerpt of Debra Gwartney's current memoir, I Am a Stranger Here Myself. We'll share details about the actor soon. Kelley Ogden will perform Debra's story. Again, with only one story to perform, we'll offer author questions and answers.
The performance will also be live-streamed via Facebook and recorded for later viewing
Gwartney’s most-recent book is part history, part memoir, tapping into personal and historical details that reveal the universal need to belong and the snarl of family history, while embracing womanhood in the patriarchal American West. Gwartney teaches in the MFA Program at Pacific University.
