Oregon for the Curious with William L. Sullivan
As the season finale of the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum's annual free lecture series, you are in for a treat! One of the Museum's most popular presenters, William Sullivan is entertaining, witty, and well-informed. He will be returning on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.
Sullivan will take us on a slide show tour of Oregon’s oddest hiking and travel destinations, from an island sea cave to a forgotten canyon of colored pinnacles. Expect off-the-beaten-path tales of history and geology, as told by the bestselling author of a new short story collection, “The Oregon Variations.”
Sullivan has hiked every trail he could find in the state for his popular “100 Hikes” guidebooks, a series that he updates continually. He has also written four novels and many nonfiction books about Oregon, including “Hiking Oregon’s History,” “Oregon Favorites,” and “The Case of D. B. Cooper’s Parachute.” His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.
You are definitely in for a treat with this free event! Seating is limited, so be sure to arrive at least ten minutes prior.
This event is FREE and open to the public.
