The Oregon Book Awards Author Tour will come to the Newport Public Library at 3 p.m. this Sunday. Oregon Book Award finalists Kerry Cohen, Aria Minu-Sepehr, Jean Esteve, and Carrie Seitzinger will give readings from their nominated works.

Kerry Cohen has written six books, including three young adult novels.  Two of her books are 2013 Oregon Book Awards nominees. “Seeing Ezra: A Mother's Story of Autism, Unconditional Love, and the Meaning of Normal” is the memoir of the author’s struggle to protect her son from a system that seeks to compartmentalize and “fix” him. It is a finalist for the Sarah Winnemucca Award for Creative Nonfiction. “Dirty Little Secrets: Breaking the Silence on Teenage Girls and Promiscuity” features stories from self-admitted loose girls across the country, adolescent girls who use sex as a means to prove their worth. It is a finalist for the Frances Fuller Victor Award for General Nonfiction.
