Sue Fagalde Lick, co-coordinator of Willamette Writers’ coast branch, has published a new novel titled Up Beaver Creek. Set in a real-life community south of Newport, Oregon, it follows the adventures of a woman who calls herself P.D. Recently widowed, she has come west to start a new life as a musician, but things keep going wrong. Then the long-feared earthquake and tsunami hit.
A book launch celebration for Up Beaver Creek will take place Sunday, July 8 at 2 p.m. at the Newport Public Library. Lick will offer readings and a conversation about the book and the publishing process.
