Pam Houston is our Weakness

NWS hosting author at GT County Civic Center Sept. 9
By Anna Faller | Sept. 4, 2021

The wait is finally over. Following an original event date of April 2020 — you can guess why it was canceled — the National Writers Series welcomes author Pam Huston to the stage 7pm Thursday, Sept. 9 to discuss her memoir and 2020 Colorado Book Award winner, “Deep Creek: Finding Hope in the High Country.” A celebrated author and advocate, Houston’s many credits include two short-story collections, “Waltzing the Cat” and New York Times Notable Book recipient “Cowboys Are My Weakness,” as well as novels “Contents May Have Shifted” and “Sight Hound.” You can attend the ticketed event live at the outdoor amphitheater in the Grand Traverse County Civic Center (or watch online). Northern Michigan media personality Christal Frost will host. See for more information and tickets.
