D.B. Cooper & the Exploding Whale: Folk Heroes of the Northwest
The 2018 Cottage & Garden Tour’s luncheon and lecture was sold out over a week in advance thanks to our phenomenal speaker, Oregon author Bill Sullivan. Sullivan is an acclaimed author, historian and adventurer who has an uncanny way of discovering history that even the experts didn’t know. Is it hard to believe that the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum has invited him back for their 2019 lecture series? Don’t miss his return this April 25 at 4:00 p.m. Author William L. Sullivan takes us on a slide show tour of legendary Northwest folk heroes from Sacajawea and D.B. Cooper to Bigfoot. Expect entertaining and educational tales about the historical figures that helped define the spirit of the Pacific Northwest — as told by the author of the thriller, “The Case of D.B. Cooper’s Parachute”. Sullivan has written four novels and a dozen nonfiction books about the Northwest, including “Hiking Oregon’s History” and “Oregon Favorites.” 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. Sullivan is an engaging lecturer who keeps attendees on the edge of their seats. You won’t want the lecture to end! This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited for this presentation, so arrive early and get a cup of coffee or tea. The doors will close at 4:15 p.m. This event has been sponsored by The Ocean Lodge!
