The Windfall Reading Series begins a new season with writers Andrea Scharf and Brie Huling.
Andrea Scharf writes short stories and nonfiction, including articles. Her first nonfiction book, “Saving Big Creek,” chronicles the battle to protect an undeveloped property on the Central Oregon Coast that is habitat for elk, Coho salmon, and the endangered Oregon Silverspot Butterfly. When plans to build a destination resort there were announced, the local community began a campaign that lasted almost forty years before the developer agreed to sell the property to The Nature Conservancy. “Saving Big Creek” takes a deep look at one place on the planet, the geological forces that shaped it, and the people who settled there, from those who migrated across the Bering Sea and down the coast to the current residents with their differing and often contradictory ideas about what should happen on this land.
