A Novel Idea....Read Together presents "Place & History: In Search of the Pacific Northwest"
What do we mean to say when we identify the place we live as the Pacific Northwest? OSU professor William G. Robbins will answer that question in a program on Sunday, May 6th, 3:00 pm, at the Sunriver Area Library. This Oregon Council for the Humanities presentation is part of the Novel Idea...Read Together, community-reading project offered by Deschutes Public Library and the Deschutes Public Library Foundation. This program is free and open to the public.

Williams suggests that the interplay of a number of forces helps to define our understanding of place. In this multi-discipline program he analyzes the complex relationships between geography and history and how we have come to identify the place we live as the Pacific Northwest. He concludes with a discussion of the literature of the Pacific Northwest which will include this year's Novel Idea selected book, "Bowerman and the Men of Oregon".
