HILLSBORO, Ore. - Feb. 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Oregon for the Curious

A slide show presentation by William L. Sullivan

 Hillsboro, OR  - April 18th, author William L. Sullivan takes 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 over seventeen books and numerous articles about Oregon.  Event presented by Jacobsen’s Books in Downtown Hillsboro Friday, April 18th at 7pm.

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.

The Oregon Variations, his new book releasing April 1st celebrates the state’s quirks with an entertaining and often irreverent collection of short stories. Hang on for the ride as you meet Beaverton roller derby queens, Hells Canyon Hot Shot fire crews, cantankerous Newport fishermen, and a Portland bookstore owner who buys the mystic Oregon Vortex on a hunch.  Modeled after Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” the stories reel from flash fiction to parody, all the time revolving around deeper themes of love, loneliness, and art.
