Happy 150th Birthday, Oregon!

Happy (belated) birthday, Oregon! We love you! And you look seriously fabulous for 150… In celebration of our fair state’s sesquicentennial, we recommend the special edition of Great and Minor Moments in Oregon History, edited by Dick Pintarich. The book is a collection of fascinating and juicy tidbits about our most favorite state in the union. The essays and anecdotes cover everything from Oregon’s geological history to stories about the seedy underbelly of Portland (one of my favorite subjects). It’s guaranteed to both inform and entertain (could you really ask for more?) and it might also make you a more interesting conversationalist at parties -- not that you're not already wildly fascinating.... Let the celebration begin! And stay tuned for news on events in March at Broadway Books relating to the celebration.
