Lake Oswego Reads Announces the Book Choice for 2010


       Book Selection Criteria for Lake Oswego Reads:

  • A book for high school age and older that would appeal to a wide range of readers from new readers to long time book group members.

  • A book that will strengthen civic pride, foster discussion among residents and bring the community together through the common bond of reading.

  •  A book that would offer opportunities for additional citywide special events.

  • Affordable – paperback, audio and large print.

  • Author available to speak.

 

The Lake Oswego Public Library has selected Ivan Doig’s The Whistling Season as the book for the 2010 citywide reading program, Lake Oswego Reads.

 

This will be the program’s fourth year. 

 

Because 2010 is the Centennial year for the City of Lake Oswego, this book will tie into the celebration and will allow readers to learn what life was like in 1910.  The Whistling Season takes place in 1909 -1920 and follows the story about Paul Milliron and his brothers who are struggling to cope with the loss of their mother and struggling with their father who is unable to keep the house in reasonable order. Rescue comes in the form of Rose Llewellyn, a housekeeper from Minneapolis who brings her brother, Morris, with her. When the teacher in the one-room schoolhouse runs away with the preacher, Morris is pressed into service as the teacher. The year is a coming-of-age one for Paul, who narrates this story. He enjoys the company and influence of Rose and Morris, until their secretive past catches up to them.

 

Doig was very pleased to hear about the selection and said, “I always feel very lucky when The Whistling Season is chosen for a community read, as if the characters of my imagination are being welcomed as honorary citizens.”

 

The Steering Committee for Lake Oswego Reads, consisting of librarians, community leaders, high school English teachers and high school students, selected this book from over 30 different suggestions. 

 

Book Summary

Old school storytelling brings to life the challenges of homesteading farmers and their children in early 1910. The story is told from the perspective of Paul, the eldest of three sons and by far the brightest student in the one room schoolhouse. His father, recently widowed, sees an ad by a housekeeper “Can’t cook but doesn’t bite.” There in begins the journey of the ever-whistling Rose into the hearts of the men in the Milliron family. Accompanying Rose from Minneapolis to Marias Coulee is her brother Morrie, an eccentric, walking encyclopedia, also with a secret to hide. Without notice the current schoolteacher leaves to get married and Morrie accepts the challenge of educating the students with absolutely no experience in a classroom. His impromptu lessons in astronomy, weather and ancient history keep the students engaged like never before.  But why does Morrie have brass knuckles in his vest pocket?  What is he hiding or hiding from?  Keep reading the delightful chapters as the mystery unfolds in The Whistling Season.

     About the Author

Author Ivan Doig

"Ivan Doig has been, from This House of Sky, his first grand entry into literature, one of the great American voices, full of grace, abounding in humanity, easeful in narration, hypnotic in pace, grand in range," says his international contemporary Thomas Keneally of Australia, author of Schindler's List. Richard Critchfield added in the Washington Post: "Nor is Doig's gift merely literary. Besides his intuitions and artistry there is the iron purpose of an ex-ranch hand who has earned his Ph.D. in history." Born in Montana in 1939, Doig grew up along the Rocky Mountain Front, the dramatic landscape that has inspired much of his writing. His career has been honored with the lifetime "Distinguished Achievement" award by the Western Literature Association, and in the San Francisco Chronicle poll to name the best American West novels and works of non-fiction of the twentieth century, he is the only living writer with books in the top dozen of both lists: English Creek in fiction and This House of Sky in non-fiction. He and his wife Carol divide their time between their home in Seattle and the places his writing takes him.

 

His books (all are available in paperback) and his awards:

This House of Sky, 1978; finalist for the National Book Award; Christopher Award; chosen "best book about Montana" in Montana, The Magazine of Western History readers' poll; more than 200,000 copies sold.

 

Winter Brothers, 1980; Governor's Writers Award; adapted for television by KCTS, Seattle.

 

The Sea Runners, 1982; Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award for Literary Excellence; chosen as one of "ten best books of the year" by Chicago Sun-Times and "notable books of the year" by the New York Times Book Review.

 

English Creek, 1984; Western Heritage Award as best novel of the year; Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award; read by The Radio Reader on National Public Radio.

 

Dancing at the Rascal Fair, 1987; Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award; his most popular book, now in its 4th edition.

 

Ride with Me, Mariah Montana, 1990; Library Journal "highly recommended" choice; Christian Science Monitor serialization.

 

Heart Earth, 1993; $10,000 Evans Biography Award; Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award.

 

Bucking the Sun, 1996; Governor's Writers Award. Mountain Time, 1999; NewStar audio set.

 

Prairie Nocturne, 2003; graded `A' by Entertainment Weekly; book club favorite.

 

The Whistling Season, 2006; six printings; Booksense national bestseller list; American Library Association's 2007 Alex Award as one of ten best books for Young Adults; Reader's Digest Condensed Book; Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award; nominated for International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.

 

The Eleventh Man, 2008; Recorded Books audio set; paperback published September 2009.

COVER TO COVER—THE BOOK CLUB QUILTERS
Quilts inspired by The Whistling Season by Ivan Doig

 

 

1.  HALEY GOES TO SCHOOL

Designed, pieced, and quilted by Linda Reinert

The one room schoolhouse was such a joyous place.  And even more so the night

that Haley’s Comet came.  I drew my inspiration from this event.

 

2.  THREE PART HARMONY

Designed and pieced by Cindy Settle Cline

Quilted by Linda Alexander

This quilt of the whistling wind across the coulees of Montana is an intuitive color

and design study inspired by the teachings of Jean Wells and Ann Johnston.  The

blades of the windmill are from a Judy Niemeyer paper piecing pattern.

 

3.  WHISTLING ROSE

Pieced by Joanne MacNaughton

Quilted by Carol Parks

A Peace Rose in my garden and a Ruth McDowell pattern of a rose inspired

this quilt.  Pat Busby helped me with the complex construction.

 

 4.  RAISING THE FLAG

Pieced and quilted by Vonda Piersol

“Morrie announced to Carnelia and me that he was bestowing the honor of

raising and lowering the flag.  The splendid new 46-star flag with fresh dyed

stars and stripes, an unquestionable beauty, had to be handled with utmost

respect at all times. . .   There it lay on the ground! Rules of the flag stark as

scripture, the pair of us stood stricken into stone.  No one had seen the seventh

grade of Marias Coulee disgrace itself.  Eddie grabbed the flag from my hands,

sped the flag up the pole, and without a word more, the three of us headed into

the schoolhouse.”  Paul Milliron, age 13, 1909.

 

5.  OUTWOLFING THE TURLEYS

Designed, pieced, and quilted by Beth Wells

Ambrose and Eddie Turley are trappers who hunt wolves and coyotes for a

livelihood.  My quilt depicts one lucky wolf who evades the Turleys.

 

6.  TUNDRA COMET

Original design by Judy Eselius

Quilted by Rhonda Beyer

Inspired by the spectacular Spring arrival of the Tundra Swans.  They are also

called “Whistling Swans” which refers to the sound made by the slow powerful beating of their wings in flight.

 

7.  HALEY MEETS THE WHISTLING SWAN

Designed, pieced, and quilted by Pat Busby

I used an Art Deco style design for the back drop and added a fantasy

Whistling Swan on the pond which was briefly mentioned in the book.  The

novel was set in a western landscape of Montana during the time of Haley’s

Comet of 1910.

 

8.  BACK TO SCHOOL

Designed and quilted by Cathy Erickson

This quilt celebrates the importance of education, no matter how difficult the

situation might be.  The quilt used hand-dyed fabric, machine piecing, and

micro-quilting.

 

9.  CHILDREN OF MARIAS COULEE

Pieced by Carole Schmitz Monahan

Quilted by Melissa Hoffman

My folk art quilt was inspired by the many scenes centered in and around Marias Coulee and the schoolhouse.  Patterns are adapted from the quilt book, Kids on the Bed.

             

 

             


About the Cover to Cover Book Club Quilters 

In December, 2000, a book club for quilters organized in the Portland area. In an effort to make more interesting quilts and be motivated to get them finished, this unique group of quilt artists decided to challenge itself to make quilts inspired by literature. All members read the same book and each member then creates a quilt using the book as inspiration. The club is well into its tenth year, and the body of work is growing. While skills and styles vary within the group, everyone brings her unique talent and ideas, making it an open forum for innovative approaches to creating art quilts as well as beautiful traditional pieces. The camaraderie and support, as well as opportunities to show their work as a group, have helped these creative women achieve new goals in the art of quilting. 

The timeline for the book-to-quilt process is six months. A book is selected and eight weeks later the group meets to discuss the book and share ideas for possible quilt designs. Sometimes sketches are shown and sometimes the pieces are already in production. The finished quilts are presented at a celebratory dinner at the end of the sixe month period. The next book is chosen by vote, and the process beings again. Every month members get together to share techniques and offer encouragement and feedback. 

The Book ClubQuilters have some long term objectives that stem from each member’s personal goals. They share the idea that they are in the group for personal growth as artists with the common desire to develop new skills, put them to use and then celebrate the outcome, whether it is a show worthy quilt or an enlightening design study or exercise. Their hope is that others will be inspired by the quilts and are encouraged to start their own club.

Author Ivan Doig

Hear the Author

Wednesday, February 17, Lake Oswego High School Auditorium, 2501 Country Club Rd. at 7:00 P.M.

Ivan Doig, author of The Whistling Season, will be speaking at Lake Oswego High School about “Passion, Precision, and Whistling a Work Song.”  This event is for high school age and older.  Admission is free but a ticket is required for this event.  Tickets will be available at the Lake Oswego Public Library starting at 11 A.M. on Saturday, January 30. There will be a two ticket per person limit and a Lake Oswego Library Card is required. Note: the tickets will be valid until 15 minutes before the event begins on February 17.  Seating is first come, first served.  Wednesday, February 17, Lake Oswego High School Auditorium, 2501 Country Club Rd., 7 P.M. Free but tickets are required.  Mr Doig said, "My narrator in The Whistling Season, Paul Milliron, educator and bookman and graduate of a one-room school that he was, would have fully known the value of a community read such as Lake Oswego’s spirited one, all the way from its linguistic beginnings.  “Communitas,” the root of our usage of “community” --in Paul’s well-thumbed Latin-to-English dictionary, these several meanings of “communitas” are given: sharing, partnership, social ties, fellowship, togetherness.”  What better rewards than these could readers and writer alike ask for, by way of the blessed common ground of reading? Due to a hand injury author Ivan Doig will not be able to sign copies of his book.

Eyes of the Future Look at the Past

The Art Literacy Program engages students on an intimate level bringing to life the artists working in 1910 and their influence on the world today. Morrie would be so proud!  Some Lake Oswego School elementary schools are participating in Lake Oswego Reads and the Centennial Celebration by studying the artists and then creating their own art which will be on display from February through April:

Bryant - Piet Mondrian: Abstract paintings

Hallinan - Henri Matisse: Paper collages 

Rivergrove - Grandma Moses: Landscapes

Uplands - Alexander Calder: Wire sculptures

Home School students are also participating.

Art will be on display at the West End Building Feb 1 - April 30 ,
Hours: Open during business hours and evenings during on-site events

 

Art Literacy is delighted to be a part of this year’s Lake Oswego Reads program.  By creating art related to “The Whistling Season”, students learn about the variety of art produced by artists who lived and worked at about the time that Lake Oswego was being incorporated into a city.  Visit the West End Building from February 1st through May 14th and see student artwork inspired by Alexander Calder, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian and Grandma Moses, all contemporaries of Morrie!

 

The Art Literacy program teaches art appreciation to Lake Oswego school children from their early years in kindergarten through junior high school.  Over 300 volunteers reach out to children in 10 elementary schools and 2 junior high schools, meeting with them monthly during the school year to teach them about the art of a particular artist or culture.  These volunteer teachers prepare for their lessons by attending training meetings where they study the artwork and practice the hands-on project that will become part of their classroom presentation. 

 

The program has evolved over the 24 years since its beginning but the goal has remained the same: To help students appreciate how diverse peoples and cultures have translated ideas, emotions and concepts into artistic creations and in doing so, help them express themselves through the creation or selection of art

 

High School Involvement

Both Lake Oswego high schools are participating in Lake Oswego Reads for the fourth year.  Lake Oswego High School and Lakeridge High School will incorporate themes from The Whistling Season in selected English class curriculum and art class curriculum. 

 

 

Circus Art Display

Lake Oswego resident and artist Mark Schlemmer has long been fascinated with the richness of life before television. He creates kinetic art pieces primarily depicting circus acts from a collection of old circus ephemera he owns.  Many of his favorites are made from real circus posters created in the early 20th century.  These are on display in the Lake Oswego Library all of February (end of the book stacks on the main floor.)
