The Hood River Library hosts two author events featuring books that focus on the Gorge and its history.
On April 25, in the final event of the Hood River County Reads 2013 season, Katherine Schlick Noe talks on “Writing from Real Life: The story behind ‘Something to Hold.’”
Noe, a University of Seattle professor of education, will read from and discuss her book “Something to Hold” at 7 p.m. The novel, based on her own childhood experiences, centers on the young woman Kitty as she grows up as one of the only white girls on the Warm Springs Reservation in Oregon.
Noe is the daughter of Mary Schlick of Mt. Hood, an author and historian.
Waucoma Bookstore and the library district, as well as the Columbia Gorge Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute, host author John Soennichsen at 2 p.m. April 28 at the library.
Soennichsen will present a slideshow based on his guidebook and travel narrative “Washington’s Channeled Scablands: Explore and Recreate along the Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail.”
His guide offers a comprehensive and intimately knowledgeable tour of this one-of-a-kind region.
