An Afternoon with Bestselling Author John Larison

John Larison was born in Oregon in 1979, and became a fly fishing guide on the Oregon Coast before turning full-time to writing. He is the bestselling author of four books. His most recent novel, Whiskey When We’re Dry, was a Los Angeles Times Bestseller, an Indie Next Pick, and was named a Best Book by O Magazine, Goodreads, Entertainment Weekly, Powell's, and others. It is currently being developed for a feature film by the writers and producers of the Planet of the Apes franchise. He lives with his family in Bellfountain, Oregon. 

In the spring of 1885, Jessilyn Harney finds herself orphaned on the family’s remote ranch. She cuts her hair, dresses in men’s clothing, and sets off on her undersized horse to reunite with the last family she has left--a big brother turned notorious outlaw.  John Larison will read from his bestselling new novel, talk about the writing process, and answer reader questions. Books will be available for signing at the event.

Salishan has recently changed ownership and the new management has made exciting changes and breathed new life into the resort... This is a wonderful destination resort for people looking for a peaceful retreat and a classic Pacific Northwest experience. At the same time, there is enough action going on that it’s a great resort for families.

Lovely hotel situated in a nicely landscaped environment. Room was comfortable and clean; contained a dining table with chairs near a welcoming fireplace.

We had a wonderful weekend stay on this beautiful property! The staff was very helpful, knowledable and unpretentious. We were able to relax and wander the property and take advantage of a few of the many activities.

Really great location. My family liked being tucked back in the forest. My son loved the pool and getting to hunt for glass floats!

Absolutely one of the most beautiful resorts in the Pacific Northwest. First class accommodations and activities galore. If I could give them six stars I would. Probably one of the best customer experiences we have had.

The Spa at Salishan was easily one of the most beautiful spas I’ve been to…The massage was epic, but so was just wandering around the spa and admiring its beauty.
