Join us to hear author Michael Tidemann discuss his book Letters from Elk City.

Letters from the City is a historical drama that takes place on the Oregon Coast and in the American South. It focuses on the treatment of African slaves and Native Americans over several centuries. High-ranking military men have relationships with heroic minority women who challenge both tradition and the standards of their day.

At the heart of the story are Sir Francis Drake and his lover Maria, a freed African slave; Philip Davis and his future wife, Carissa; and Philip's descendent Billy Davis and his wife Sarah, a forensic anthropologist.

Kirkus Review praises “Tidemann’s mastery of the complex nuances of multiple historical periods ... His prose style, especially in dialogue, is consistently faithful to the period in which it occurs.”
