Celebrating Nature and History, Portland Style

November 9, 2011

Every year, two longstanding Portland festivals shine a bright light on two subjects that are well-loved at OSU Press—natural history and Northwest history. This year, as always, OSU Press authors will be in good supply at the Wild Arts Festival and OHS's Holiday Cheer.

At thMarcy Houle and Evelyn Hesse 31st Wild Arts Festival, which takes place Saturday, November 19  and Sunday, November 20, attendees can meet regionally and nationally known artists and writers, including OSU Press authors Robin Cody, Mike Houck and M.J. Cody, Brian Doyle, Marcy Houle, Bart King, Robert Michael Pyle, Barbara Roberts, Noah Strycker, William L. Sullivan, and Ellen Waterston. Of special note: the official launch of the new edition of Wild in the City!

The 44th Holiday Cheer, the Oregon Historical Society's celebration of Oregon authors, happens on Sunday, December 4. This year attendees can purchase a ticket to attend a special event with Jean Auel in addition to meeting all the attending authors at the main event. From OSU Press, look for Carl Abbott, C. Melvin Aikens, Avel Louise Gordly and Patricia Schechter, Michael C. Houck and M.J. Cody, Bart King, Barbara Roberts, and William L. Sullivan.

These well-loved events mark the season of gift-giving in Portland—they are definitely worth a visit!
