Celebrate the power of books to create a stronger community by attending the 2023 Everybody Reads author event with Ruth Ozeki!
In partnership with Multnomah County Library and The Library Foundation, Literary Arts is proud to present a lecture by bestselling author Ruth Ozeki as the culminating event of Everybody Reads 2023.
Everybody Reads is an annual community-wide project that promotes shared reading and discussion around a single book. This year’s programming will center on Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being, a finalist for the Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Copies of the book are available for free at all Multnomah County Library branches thanks to the generosity of The Library Foundation.

Got the book, but hearing the author always adds depth to the read
We would enjoy hearing this talk!
This sounds just like my kind of event….
I would love this! Thanks for considering me!
This was one of my favorite all time favorite reads. We just started a new book club and this book came up almost at once!
I loved this book and love this author. Would love to go!
It’s so inspiring to meet authors and know more about the process and craft behind a book. Also, I’m new to the Portland area. I’d love to have this experience.
I loved that book!
I love books, book clubs, author talks and particularly their level of insight that they bring.
Ruth Ozeki and I are inspired by the same Zen teacher! We are kindred spirits. Would love 2 tickets to see her!
I loved this book, have never been to an author talk before and I would love to experience it!
I love this book. I listened to the audio book narrated by Ruth. She brought to life every character, and I was overcome with emotion as the story evolved. I would love to hear and see Ruth at this event.
Would love this!
This book was so fantastic: I would LOVE to attend this event and hear the author talk about her work!
One of the best books I’ve read
I loved this book!! Would be thrilled to see her speak.
This is a New Book and a New Author for me… I’m very excited for the introduction. Thank you 😍📚
Yes, please. 📚
Midway through this book and loving it!
Seeing a local woman writer of her statue, in person, would make my dream come true!
My neighbor recently gifted me a copy of this book! How cool would it be if I surprised her with tickets to this event in return!?
I would love to see Ruth Ozeki! I’m listening to this audiobook right now.
This would be so amazing to attend!
Just read her book with my book club. Would love to hear her speak!
During the pandemic, I lost the habit of going out to cultural events. I’m working to reestablish that, and also wanting to add in things like writer’s talks to my activities (as well as more poetry and artist talks). I also love to talk about what I’ve read, and to hear what people think about their own reading. This sounds like an interesting, imaginative book and I would love to come together with a group of people who have read/are reading/will read it and hear from the author.
Dada needs tickies
I’ve loved Ruth Ozeki since I first read my year of meats. This is the only book I haven’t read and I got a copy the other day. Would love this type of outing to get to hear from the author and their perspective on writing and such.
This was one of the most moving and insightful works I’ve read- and to hear Ms. Ozeki speak of her inspiration for the theme, her research and creative process in writing this book would be an honor~ she truly is a masterful writer.
It would be such an honor to be chosen for these tickets! I would love to take my grandmother to see one of her favorite authors!
My friend got and gave me a free copy of this book from the library and I loved it! I liked it so much more than any of the books I’ve read for the book club I’ve been in for almost 1.5 years 🤪 would gladly attend this talk if I won these tix
I read A Tale for the Time Being when it was first released and loved it. I have been recommending it to people since then. Seeing Ruth Ozeki speak about it would be amazing!
When I first started reading a Tale for the Time Being I was immediately drawn in by Ruth’s writing style. Her work quickly became some of my top favorite, and I would love the chance to see her speak!
Read this book. Would love to hear her.
Would love to see her in person and experience this talk. Thank you!
This was the book that pulled me out of my year long reading slump—I loved it and would love to see the author talk more about it!
Great book, fascinating woman, would love to hear her speak
Ruth Ozeki is amazingly brilliant! Her writing weaves together a multiplicity of worlds with words. I would love to take my partner to this event because we just started sitting zazen together.
I just read the book with my book club and would love the chance ti take a friend to listen to her speak.
Ozeki is an amazing author & it would be a joy to attend this talk!
I’ve never been to an author reading, and Ruth Ozeki is brilliant.
