Famed author Ursula K. Le Guin shared the secrets behind her novel, 'The Wizard of Earthsea,' March 15, capping off this year's community-wide West Linn Reads program.
The reading, rescheduled because of last month's snowfall, was held at the West Linn Public Library.
Throughout February, the library hosted a variety of events and activities revolving around themes set forth in the classic fantasy novel, such as dragon puppet-making and cover illustration design work.
Attendees had the chance to hear the 81-year-old author read excerpts from 'The Wizard of Earthsea' as well as ask questions of their own. The winners of the program's essay contest were also announced at the reading.
