Oregon Author William Sullivan to Speak on Northwest Folk Heroes
01/23/2017

The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce a visit featuring author William Sullivan on Thursday, February 23 at 7:00 pm in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. Sullivan will presenting “D. B. Cooper & the Exploding Whale: Folk Heroes of the Northwest”. There will be a reception accompanying the event.

Author William L. Sullivan takes us on a slide show tour of legendary Northwest folk heroes from Sacajawea and D.B. Cooper to Bigfoot. Expect entertaining and educational tales about the historical figures that helped define the spirit of the Pacific Northwest -- as told by the author of the thriller, “The Case of D.B. Cooper’s Parachute”. 

Sullivan has written four novels and a dozen nonfiction books about the Northwest, including “Hiking Oregon’s History” and “Oregon Favorites.” His journal of a 1000-mile hike he took across Oregon, “Listening for Coyote,” was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books,” the 100 most significant books in the state’s history.

The Stayton Public Library’s speaking events for 2017 are made possible, in part, by funding from the Marion County Cultural Corporation and the Stayton Friends of the Library.
