High Mountain Valley Local Authors Collection
The High Mountain Local Authors Collection contains a selection of Central Washington’s unique and noteworthy literary efforts. It includes examples of various literary forms and genres, novels, poetry, history, philosophy, children’s books, romance, fantasy, new age, memoir, and essay. The arc of the collection is broad and includes examples of academic publishing, mainstream publishing, small-edition-self-published works, mass published works, print-on-demand books in hardback and soft cover, underground literary magazines, and art zines. For those keenly interested in documenting the history of books and printing, the collection includes a spectrum of printing techniques, letter press, offset, photocopying, linoleum block printing, mimeograph, calligraphy, and more. The volumes in the collection were gathered and donated by Jampa Dorje (Richard Denner) beginning in 2018.
