NW Authors Series Hosts Callum Angus
Join us at the Cannon Beach Library on Saturday Oct. 15 at 2 p.m. for the NW Authors Series featuring Callum Angus. This is a hybrid event, blending in-person with live streaming. Come to the library on the day of the event, 131 N Hemlock St, or watch online – at www.cannonbeachlibrary.org.

Angus is the author of “A Natural History of Transition.” This short story collection challenges notions of transformation, as characters turn into mountains, unravel hometown mysteries and give birth to cocoons. His work is infused with a rich variety of alternative history, horror and fantasy. The book was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award in Transgender Fiction, the Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction, and an Oregon Book Award/Ken Kesey Award in Fiction.

Callum Angus is a trans writer and editor living in Portland, Oregon. He holds an MFA in fiction from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a BA in geography from Mount Holyoke College and has taught writing at Smith College, UMass Amherst and Clark College.

Angus has worked as a bookseller, fishmonger, barista, reporter, and an advocate helping transgender youth and their families navigate the world. He’s also worked in publicity and edits the literary journal smoke + mold.

The library’s NW Authors Series showcases writers of the Pacific Northwest. Authors read from their works and participate in discussions. These events are free and open to the public.
