Some Upcoming Events to Put On Your Calendar!
An Inspiring Chapter of Local History!
Saturday April 28 | 2:00PM - 3:00PM
Join us as author Jennifer Chambers discusses the dynamic partnership of Abigail Scott Duniway and Susan B. Anthony as they toured Oregon and Washington fighting for women's rights, changing the Northwest and the country forever.

In the early 1870's, Abigail Duniway was already a well-known writer and journalist in Portland, and prominent orator Susan B. Anthony was touring the nation speaking out for women's suffrage.  When Anthony accepted Duniway's invitation to speak in the Northwest, a tale of two remarkable women was sparked.  This is the story of that decades-long friendship and their battle for the right to vote, and an inspirational, little-known chapter of Northwest history.

This event is free and open to the public.

Green Burial Guidebook Talk & Signing
Saturday May 26 | 2:00PM - 4:00PM
Mark your calendar to hear author Elizabeth Fournier speaking on Green Burial: Everything You Need to Plan an Affordable, Environmentally Friendly Burial

Funeral expenses in the U. S. average more than $10,000. And every year conventional funerals bury millions of tons of wood, concrete, and metals, as well as millions of gallons of carcinogenic embalming fluid. There is a better way, and Elizabeth Fournier, affectionately dubbed the “Green Reaper,” walks you through it step-by-step. She provides comprehensive and compassionate guidance, covering everything from green burial planning and home funeral basics to legal guidelines and outside-the-box options, such as burials at sea. Fournier points the way to green burial practices that consider both the environmental well-being of the planet and the economic well-being of loved ones.

This event is co-sponsored by the Clark County Green Neighbors Program & Vintage Books

Every writer would love to make money from writing, right? This is the place to discover some ways how to make it pay!

She loves research and will use any excuse to learn about Celtic cultures and the 19th century.

She is a keen and omnivorous reader, a traveller who loves to plan, and a lover of song and dance in many forms.

Her novels include The Keening and The Grasping Root, part of the historical drama series, Remnants; Memory's Hostage, a historical mystery; and Dulci's Legacy, a YA mystery/fantasy hybrid. She resides in Portland, OR.
