Martha’s book made the short list of recent books by University of Oregon alumni that “captured our imaginations,” as presented in the Autumn 2014 edition of Oregon Quarterly, the U of O magazine.
Just happened to pick it up from the pile of magazines that came while I was gallivanting off to Kansas and Missouri. Began thumbing through and there we were. Nice surprise.
The press has been good to us with big stories this summer in the Eugene and Roseburg papers.
When people came to my booth at Fort Umpqua Days in Elkton last weekend, many commented they’d read about my book in the paper, and I had to ask which one.
The Roseburg News-Review did a nice big story, written by Garrett Andrews with a photo by Michael Sullivan.
And the Eugene Register-Guard gave the book a huge spread, written by Randi Bjornstad with photos by Paul Carter.
Sometimes people had seen one, sometimes the other. And a few heard one of the “As It Was” segments about Martha on Jefferson Public Radio. What fun!
I’m delighted and thankful for the attention the book has received. Wouldn’t Martha be thrilled?
