There’s a special event at the Hood River County Library — a live web-stream event from Lincoln Center in New York City with acclaimed author Dan Brown (DaVinci Code), discussing his new book “Inferno,” on Wednesday, May 15, at 4:30 p.m.
Brown will also discuss science, religion, codes, book publishing, movie making, and a few surprise topics.
In this new thriller, “Inferno,” Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.
In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces, “Dante’s Inferno.”
He enters into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways and futuristic science.
Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
