Bestselling author opens lecture series
On April 2, Jane Kirkpatrick, best-selling author of historical fiction, will talk about her latest character, Dorothea Dix.
Dix lived 200 years ago, during an era when a woman was meant to marry and stay out of the public eye. Kirkpatrick is calling her talk “The Power of One.”
Shannon Kaplan, director and co-founder of the Chehalem Mountain Therapy Riding Center, will present “Hope and Healing Through Horses” on April 9. Ramesh Sagili, assistant professor of apiculture at Oregon State University, will present “Honey Bee Health & Current Challenges in Beekeeping” on April 16.
Colby Neuman of the Portland Weather Service will discuss the evolution of weather science on April 23. Jason Minor, executive director of 1000 Friends of Oregon, will discuss the evolution of land use planning on April 30.
Members of the general public are invited to attend the sessions. Admission runs $5.
