Artist's rendition of D.B. Cooper

On Thursday, April 25, explore the history and legends that make Oregon unique.

Acclaimed Oregon author and historian William L. Sullivan leads a journey through legendary northwest folk heroes from Sacajawea and D.B. Cooper to Bigfoot.

Sullivan will share 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.

This event is free and open to the public. Sullivan’s presentation starts at 4 p.m. Seating and parking is limited for this presentation. The doors  close at 4:15 p.m. While you’re at the museum, check out the latest exhibits on display there.

The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum also features the history of Cannon Beach and Arch Cape, a longhouse replica, tide pool exhibit, and the cannon that Cannon Beach is named for. For more information visit, find us on Facebook or call 503-436-9301.
