I was very honored to have my story, Columbus Day, included in the Oregon Stories for the sesquicentenial celebration.
by Ooligan Press & the Oregon 150 Commission
This collection of 150 personal narratives from everyday Oregonians explores the thoughts, feelings, and experiences of the people who live in this unique state. Oregon Stories shows why people cherish this state and why Oregonians strive to keep Oregon unique and beautiful while celebrating its rich history and diverse opportunities.
Drawn from the Oregon 150 Commission’s Oregon Stories web site project—in which a variety of citizens submitted personal stories that will resonate with any Oregon resident—this book collects the stories and histories of the people that make this place home. The subject of these stories varies widely—some authors tell detailed family histories, while others describe exciting travels throughout Oregon’s beautiful landscape. This book features local contributors who reside in different communities all over the state, resulting in a publication truly representative of Oregonians as a whole.
