Join me and other Oregon authors at the Art & the Vineyard Festival’s Oregon Authors Table! The Festival and Table run July 3–5, and I’ll be there July 3 & July 5, 11:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Now in its 18th year, the Oregon Authors Table has become a popular feature of this artsy celebration on the Fourth of July weekend in Eugene’s Alton Baker Park, along the Willamette River.
