William Willingham comes for Lunch in the Loft November 15

William Willingham will join us for Lunch in the Loft at noon on Thursday, November 15. Grit and Ink offers a rare look inside the financial struggles and family dynamic that has kept a Pacific Northwest publishing group alive for more than a century. The newspapers of the Aldrich-Forrester-Bedford-Brown family depict the histories of Oregon towns like Pendleton, Astoria, John Day, Enterprise and Long Beach, Washington. Grit and Ink describes threats presented by the Ku Klux Klan, the Great Astoria Fire of 1923, the Great Depression, the Aryan Nation, the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation, the Digital Revolution, and more. It should be an interesting day of history and a discussion of freedom of the press.
