100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Nature of Words Announces 2011 Author Lineup

The Nature of Words author lineup for 2011 includes Augusten Burroughs, William Kittredge, Heidi W. Durrow and many more.

Posted By on Sat, Jul 2, 2011 at 1:15 AM

The Nature of Words, Bend's literary festival just released the lineup of authors who will be present at the 2011 edition of the festival, which takes place between November 2 and 6.

Here's the lineup that was announced tonight at the festival's Book Plate event:

Augusten Burroughs (keynote)

This writer is best known for the memoir about his outlandishly unconventional (and at times disturbing) youth, Running With Scissors, which was later made into a movie. The author -- who had a successful career in advertising before he began writing -- is also the author of Dry, another memoir, which details his struggles with alcoholism.

Heidi W. Durrow

The Portland native and author of The Girl Who Fell  appeared at tonight's event and will return in November.

William Kittredge

One of Oregon's premier writers, Kittredge is a former rancher who began writing later in life and his work details Western themes.
