One new book came into my house last week.
Grit and Ink: An Oregon Family’s Adventures in Newspapering, 1908–2018 by William F. Willingham, new from OSU Press.
Astoria and Pendleton are on opposite sides of Oregon, but were linked by two newspapers and two families for generations. This book tells the story of how and why these connections were important for those communities and for the state.
It would make a good holiday gift for readers interested in local journalism, the newspaper business, and Oregon history.
Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.
Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Martha of Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf.
