Everybody Reads Idah
All Locations
Saturday, Jul. 28
For Everybody Reads 2018, join us in the reading of "Idaho" a stunning debut novel about love and forgiveness, about the violence of memory and the equal violence of its loss—from O. Henry Prize–winning author Emily Ruskovich.
Ann and Wade have carved out a life for themselves from a rugged landscape in northern "Idaho,"where they are bound together by more than love. With her husband’s memory fading, Ann attempts to piece together the truth of what happened to Wade’s first wife, Jenny, and to their daughters. In a story written in exquisite prose and told from multiple perspectives—including Ann, Wade, and Jenny, now in prison—we gradually learn of the mysterious and shocking act that fractured Wade and Jenny's lives, of the love and compassion that brought Ann and Wade together, and of the memories that reverberate through the lives of every character in "Idaho."

The author will appear throughout the Palouse and LC Valley in November 2018. Ruskovich's complete schedule of events is listed below.
  • Monday, Nov. 5 - Lewiston City Library @ 12 p.m. & Asotin County Library in Clarkston @ 7 p.m.

Inner Landscapes pho
Colfax Branch Library
Saturday, Jul. 28 (During regular library hours)

A new exhibit called “Inner Landscapes” by local photographer Jim Trivelpiece begins on Monday, July 2 at the Center at Colfax Library. In celebration, community members are invited to an open house reception on Wednesday, July 11 from 5-8 p.m. at The Center. Attendees will meet the artist, view the exhibit and enjoy yummy refreshments.

For this show, Trivelpiece snapped photos in unlikely places all around the Palouse and then explored, “what occurs when the lens is pointed back at the photographer.” Following the tenets of abstract painting, the images take on the task of photographing the inner life of the one holding the camera.  Following this theme, the photos also touch on Asian philosophy, physics, rock and roll, graffiti, trains and science fiction.

Trivelpiece explains that with abstract art, we are not seeing an image that the artist created.  We are experiencing a combination of the art and our reaction to it.  He says, “My favorite art is not a picture of something, but a picture of the act of seeing.  As our eyes “read” the image, the object in the frame causes our eyes and our minds to construct a new experience.  And with each fresh viewing, the experience is different.”

Inner Landscapes runs July 2- August 31 in The Center at Colfax Library. Exhibit hours are Mondays and Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, 1-5 p.m., except holidays.  Contact Whitman County Library for more information at 509-397-4366 or online at
