NW Authors Series Presents Lori Tobias (Virtual)

  • Address: 131 N Hemlock St, Cannon Beach, OR 97110
  • Phone: (503) 436-1391


Join us LIVE on Facebook Saturday, May 15, 2 p.m. PST for the next installment of the NW Authors Series! This will be our last virtual event until the series continues in September 2021.

Author Lori Tobias will discuss her new memoir, “Storm Beat,” which chronicles her years covering the Oregon Coast as a journalist for The Oregonian. During this time she was the writer responsible for covering the entirety of the coast—one person for 363 miles! The job meant long hours, being called out during dangerous conditions, storms in the middle of the night, and driving hundreds of miles in a day, if a story called for it.

Tobias has worked as a journalist for more than 25 years, including time at the Rocky Mountain News as a columnist and features writer. She currently freelances for several publications and is a columnist for Oregon Arts Watch. Her novel, “Wander,” was published by Red Hen Press in 2016. Tobias lives on the Oregon Coast with her husband Chan and rescue pups Luna and Monkey.
