Author Barbara Robertson Drake will read selections of her poetry and prose and relate her own creative writing to her father Ward Robertson’s photographs of the southern Oregon Coast, including aerial photos of the Coos Bay-North Bend area, its mills, dunes, rivers, towns, and natural beauty. Barbara Drake graduated from Marshfield H.S. in 1957.  She is a Professor of English Emerita from Linfield College and has published numerous works of poetry, nonfiction, and textbooks. Her essay collections, Peace at Heart and Morning Light (OSU Press) were both Oregon Book Award finalists. Drake’s newly published book, Everything Looks Different from the Air, celebrates her father’s art and her own love of the southern Oregon Coast.
