A Glimpse into History: Author Talk

Join author Michael McCloskey for a special presentation of his award-winning book, A Glimpse into History. It features the words of over ninety figures who transformed Oregon into the premier "green" state. They shaped the culture that saw value in nature and triggered demands for policies to protect it. Author talk begins at 1 p.m.

Michael McCloskey holds degrees from Harvard (B.A.) and from the University of Oregon (J.D.). He led the Sierra Club as executive director and chaired Portland’s Heritage Trees program for eight years. He still lives in Portland and recently authored the award-winning Conserving Oregon’s Environment: Breakthroughs That Made History and Oregon: A State that Stands Out.
