That's a lot of candles!

February 14, 2009, marks the 150th birthday of the state of Oregon. To honor this sesquicentennial (try saying THAT word three times fast), Matt Love and the Nestucca Spit Press have just released Citadel of the Spirit: Oregon's Sesquicentennial Anthology, A Merging of Past and Present Oregon Voices and Stories. Edited by Matt Love, the volume contains works both contemporary and historical and includes writings by Kim Stafford, Don Berry, Kathleen Dean Moore, H.L. Davis, Melissa Madenski, Monica Drake, Joe Kurmaskie, Henk Pander, Ken Babbs, Ken Kesey, Jeff Baker, Barry Lopez, Cheryl Strayed, and many many more. It concludes with the poem William Stafford, former Poet Laureate of Oregon, read at the opening session of the 1987 Oregon House of Representatives. This wonderful treasure of all that is Oregon can be yours for only $30. What a wonderful holiday gift this would make.
