Avid Oregon history reader and longtime OHS Museum Store bookshelf curator Andrew VanDerZanden shares some of his favorite books of Oregon history, answers your questions about what to read for the knowledge you seek, and invites you to suggest your most valued publications. Inspired by our new exhibit —We are Rose City! A History of Soccer in Portland — the presentation will focus on works of sports history. Through a wide-ranging discussion of classics to new releases, conversation with the audience will be sure to cover everything from beloved works to new-to-you authors.
BTS w/OHS is a new, virtual series — just for OHS members — that takes advantage of time gained through social distancing to share OHS staff-members’ deep and varied knowledge and create opportunities for discussion about the Oregon-history practices we all love to share.
