Karen Auvinen - Rough Beauty

Forty Seasons of Mountain Living, a Memoir Book Talk & Signing

Karen Auvinen is a poet, mountain woman, lifelong westerner, writer, and the author of the memoir Rough Beauty: Forty Seasons of Mountain Living. Auvinen will discuss and sign Rough Beauty: Forty Seasons of Mountain Living ($17.00 Scribner). Determined to live an independent life on her own terms, Auvinen flees to a primitive cabin in the Rockies to live in solitude as a writer and to embrace all the beauty and brutality nature has to offer. When a fire incinerates every word she has ever written and all of her possessions--except for her beloved dog Elvis, her truck, and a few singed artifacts--Karen embarks on a heroic journey to reconcile her desire to be alone with her need for community.
