(Lincoln City, Oregon) – Lincoln City has plenty of spring break distractions, and this March is packed with them. An author from the Oregon coast shows up to discuss his latest book at the library, while a children’s story hour brightens things up at the local history museum.

Spring break in the coastal town of central Oregon begins with a fun take on history for kids – and those a little older.

Children of all ages are invited to story time at the museum with storyteller Doug Force at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum on Saturday, March 16, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The theme of this Story Time at the Museum will be “Eau de vie”. Doug Force takes everyone on a journey through books on the theme “The Water of Life”. Force has decades of teaching, education and storytelling experience bringing stories to life. Protect yourself from the rain and make yourself comfortable in Mildred and Marie children’s bedroom for this event.

Lincoln City’s Driftwood Public Library has just announced that CD Harper will be returning to visit the library starting Sunday, March 31 at 3 p.m. to talk about their new short story book, Is It Always Tomorrow?

Slavery existed in the United States for almost 300 years. While the institution was abolished following the end of the Civil War in 1865, the legacy of this atrocious practice is still felt to this day in American society. Harper’s new collection was written to demonstrate the contradiction of this legacy in American society.

Each of this short stories is a mere glimpse into what this most fundamental contradiction demanded of its people during the 1850s and 1860s before the Civil War. Most Americans believe slavery ended with the Civil War, and it did. But its impact on how Americans think about themselves and others is so deeply ingrained in the American psyche that John F. Kennedy has declared that this country is willing to ‘pay any price, bear no’. any burden, face any difficulty, support any friend, oppose any enemy to ensure the survival and success of freedom.

Harper decided to write this collection as an attempt to educate people more about American diversity and why it makes America great: the experience of these diverse people. Slavery is at the heart of this diversity. So, I write about it. Hoping that they will improve someone’s understanding of America, the land of the free.

A captivating collection that will leave readers looking back to the beginning to make sure they haven’t missed any detail, Is It Always Tomorrow? is an amazing social commentary on one of the most prevalent issues in our society today.
