California, New Mexico, News, Oregon, Washington

Tustin locals have likely heard the buzz about Tustin As It Once Was. On Saturday December 3, author Juanita Lovret will be signing copies of her book at the Tustin Area Museum from 10 am to 2 pm. Stop by and say hello!

Fresh from events at San Diego’s Upstart Crow and the Save Our Heritage Organization in Old Town San Diego, author Richard W. Crawford will be presenting on local history at San Diego’s Central Library. Pick up a signed copy of his book, The Way We Were in San Diego, and bring your local history questions to the third floor auditorium on December 7 starting at 6:30 pm.

Polina Olsen, author of Stories from Jewish Portland, will be rubbing shoulders with Jean Auel and other great Oregon authors at the Oregon Historical Society’s annual Holiday Cheer event on Sunday December 4 from noon to 5 pm.

Oregon Civil War historian Randol B. Fletcher is fresh from a whirlwind of author events. See the photos and test your knowledge of Civil War trivia on his Hidden History of Civil War Oregon Facebook page.

Steven C. Levi, author of The Clara Nevada: Gold, Greed, Murder, and Alaska’s Inside Passage, has a forthcoming article in Lost Treasure Magazine that coincides with his book about the Gold Rush-era steamer that may have fallen prey to a captain’s get-rich scheme.

Ski historian Ingrid Wicken is currently working on a History Press book for 2012. In the meantime, her extraordinary collection of ski publications and ephemera at the California Ski Library will receive mention in the forthcoming winter edition of Fine Books and Collections Magazine.

Tacoma historian and radio personality Karla Stover is putting the finishing touches on Hidden History of Tacoma: Little-Known Tales from the City of Destiny. A woman of many talents, her short story “The Law of Inverse Consequences” is featured in the recently published West Coast Crime Wave, a crime fiction anthology.

It’s a year-long party in Arizona and New Mexico as both states prepare to celebrate their centennials in 2012. Following on the success of its previous Southwest titles, the History Press is gearing up to publish Forgotten Tales of New Mexico by Ellen Dornan, Capitan: Home of Smokey Bear by Gary Cozzens, Saving the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad by Spencer Wilson, and A Historic Guide to Arizona’s Farm Stays and Ranch Vacations by Lili DeBarbieri.

This is just a taste of what’s happening. Check back soon for more information about new History Press titles and author events here in the West.
