CANNON BEACH — The Cannon Beach Library will host “Fiction becomes Truth,” a virtual presentation by author Karen Thompson Walker Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m.

A New York Times bestselling author of two novels, Thompson Walker is known for her genre-bending stories that are part dystopian fiction, part science fiction and part psychological thriller. Her works have been hailed as thought-provoking, haunting and provocative.

Thompson Walker’s 2019 novel, “The Dreamers,” describes a college town caught in the grip of an illness that causes people to fall asleep and, possibly, never wake up. A quarantine is established, stores run out of supplies and the National Guard is called to assist.

The Dreamers

‘The Dreamers’ is written by Karen Thompson Walker.

Walker’s presentation is part of Cannon Beach Library’s NW Authors Series on Facebook Live. Viewers can join the live presentation from the library’s Facebook page or from the library’s website at cannonbeachlibrary.org.
