Free Lecture: "Russians in Oregon" Tuesday October 15

Doug Kenck-Crispen delivers history lectures with a punch! He chooses topics that lend to stories about the seedier side of the Rose City. Doug is the man behind OregonHistory.com and Kick Ass Oregon History Podcasts. He also hosts bus tours around town and a popular advocate of public history. His lectures are colorful, i.e. he swears... a lot. So if you are offended by this, you might want to sit this one out. He is an excellent speaker with a very deep and solid understanding of the history of the Pacific Northwest.

Doors open at 6pm. You will be greeted by Don Van Kirk who will show to the tables reserved for Anyone Can Join members. Feel free to sit there to meet folks or sit anywhere you like. Don will also give you a program and be able to answer questions about the series.

Lecture start at 7:30. Full menu and bar. 21+ only please
