PT Library: Free Author Talk with John Dodge, A Deadly Wind
Thursday, October 17, 2019, 07:00pm - 08:30pm

Author Bio and Book Description:

A Deadly Wind: The 1962 Columbus Day Storm is a non-fiction account of the strongest windstorm in West Coast recorded history. The storm killed dozens, injured hundreds, damaged more than 50,000 homes and leveled enough trees to build a million homes. The unrivalled cyclone gave birth to the Asian log export market and the Oregon wine industry. In A Deadly Wind, veteran journalist John Dodge weaves a compelling story spiced with human drama, Cold War implications, Pacific Northwest history and the science of severe weather. This best-selling book was published by Oregon State University press in October 2018.

About the author: John Dodge was a columnist, editorial page writer and investigative reporter for The Olympian prior to retiring in 2015 from an award-winning career that spanned 40 years. He and his wife, Barbara Digman live in the Olympia area and enjoy gardening, bird-watching, hiking, reading and traveling.
