Visiting Author Katharine English

In her memoir, Salvation, Katharine English, an Oregon family court judge, sets out on a road trip to journey through her childhood in Salt Lake City, Utah. She relives family dysfunction, religious devotion, and personal rebellion to tackle some of life’s most universal questions:
How do our childhood experiences impact who we eventually become? How can we learn to forgive?
English explores her sometimes-traumatic experiences with open eyes and the mind of a court judge to investigate life’s important challenges – Mormonism, alcoholism, abuse, love, encouragement, resilience – in her attempt to find salvation in its truest form.
Katharine lives again in Utah, and will be visiting us for this event, so let’s show her some PDX love.
