John Daniel to read for Wild Wednesday

One of our favorite authors, John Daniel, will be reading next week at Roots Brewery in an event hosted by Oregon Wild. John's most recent book is The Far Corner: Northwestern Views on Land, Life, and Literature. He is also the author of Rogue River Journal and Looking After (or his "popoir" and "momoir," as he calls them) -- two of my all-time favorite books -- and other books of poetry and nonfiction.

John's books have won two Oregon Book Awards and one Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award, and he is the recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. He writes about the land,those who inhabit it, and our connections to place. John and his wife, Marilyn, live in the foothills of the Coast Range west of Eugene.

Following John's reading of selections from his books, Oregon Wild Old Growth Campaign Coordinator Chandra LeGue will discuss the recent introduction of old-growth protection legislation for eastern Oregon forests.

Oregon Wild Wednesday is a free quarterly event open to all ages. RSVP is not required, but you are encouraged to arrive early. Roots Organic Brewery is at 1520 SE 7th Avenue in Portland. You can read more about this event here.
