Author Jennifer Thiele will talk about her research into artists with a North Oregon Coast connection at the Sunday, Jan. 27, meeting of the Tillamook County Historical Society.
Thiele will discuss her latest books, written for the Tillamook County Pioneer Museum, “The Lightning Painter,” about J.J. Englehart, and “Art with Spirit,” about Lucia Wiley. In writing the latter, Thiele drew upon the friendships she had forged with members of Wiley’s family.
Before Thiele’s talk, the society will hold a short meeting to share the accomplishments of the past year, welcome new president Rob Russell and say thank you to Sally Rissel for her years as president.
This event, which is open to all, will start at 1 pm at the Bay City Arts Center, 5680 A Street, Bay City. The cost for lunch is $10.
