The OSU Press Blog site recently published a post they invited me to write providing background on my motivations in writing Speaking for the River: Not the End, but the End of the Beginning.
There isn’t a place for constructive comments and questions on that blog, so I welcome them here.
A few weeks ago my book became available via pre-order.
On Monday I received my hard copies.
I guess this makes it real!
Good news: At long last, my book is available! A journey that began almost a decade ago has come to fruition! For those who are interested in purchasing a copy, see the attached flier for a promotion code for 30% off the retail price, valid for preorders placed through the OSU Press website (http://osupress.oregonstate.edu) before March 31, 2018.
This Sunday evening, I finished my manuscript for the book that is tentatively titled Speaking for the River: Confronting Pollution in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The book began life as a thirty-page graduate school seminar paper in 2008, grew into a hefty 140-page Master’s Thesis in 2009, and exists now as about 85,000 words of text. The book now has to go through review, and will likely be reduced and refined as a result of this process, but it’s been a long time in coming and it’s great to have finished this stage! More and positive news to follow, I do hope!
