Did you know Neil Coburn (owner of the beloved Clover Patch Cafe) was instrumental in saving the last old growth forest on Whidbey?

September 24. What We Take for Truth
Join local author Deborah Nedelman for conversation about her new novel. At its height, logging in the Pacific Northwest was brutal and beautiful. When the conservation movement sent protesters into the woods and the government began to place the needs of a small, shy bird above those of families who had lived for generations off the harvest of those woods, the conflicts that erupted were fierce and heartbreaking. Deborah’s book tells a story that both defends a way of life and celebrates a landscape that is being lost.
Additional Lunch and Learn events occur at our Coupeville location.
Share your energy, creativity, and enthusiasm.
