Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

You are invited to a reading and conversation with author Brian Doyle to celebrate the release of his novel, Mink River, this Thursday, December 2, at 7 p.m. at Troubadour Music Center, 521 SW 2nd Street, Corvallis.

Shari Ame of Three Fingered Jack will start the evening with some fiddle tunes, and then Brian will share stories from Neawanaka, the imaginary Oregon coastal village he brings to life so vividly that the Corvallis Gazette Times wonders “what took him so long to venture into the realm of fiction.” (read the story here http://bit.ly/h7rnpC)

The event is cosponsored by OSU Press, The Spring Creek Project, and Grass Roots Books & Music.

If you can’t make it to the reading, but you’re interested in sampling Mink River, check out the excerpts on pages 10 and 11 of the new issue of Oregon Quarterly here: http://www.oregonquarterly.com/winter2010/winter2010-digital.html

The OSU Libraries and the OSU Press have digitized Chapter 9 on tsnuamis
from Bob Yeat's' Living with earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest. It's
available in ScholarsArchive. http://hdl.handle.net/1957/20592

The book by OSU author, Robert Yeats, is written for the non-scientists and explorer the history of tsnumis in out area and their past impacts. Yeats details the differences between nearby and distant earthquakes and the waves they generate. He also suggests who people should respond.

Yeats is one of the world's leading experts on earthquakes, their causes and effects. He was among the first scientists to suggest in the mid-1980s that great earthquakes are possible in the Pacific Northwest on the Cascadia Subduction Zone. It has a geological makeup very similar to that of the subduction zone that just caused a massive earthquake, tsunami and catastrophic damage in Japan.
