There’s a special event at the Hood River County Library — a live web-stream event from Lincoln Center in New York City with acclaimed author Dan Brown (DaVinci Code), discussing his new book “Inferno,” on Wednesday, May 15, at 4:30 p.m.
Brown will also discuss science, religion, codes, book publishing, movie making, and a few surprise topics.
In this new thriller, “Inferno,” Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.
In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces, “Dante’s Inferno.”
He enters into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways and futuristic science.
Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
