2010 - The Whistling Season

In celebration of Lake Oswego's Centennial, we selected a book to show what life was like in 1910.  To complement Ivan Doig’s old-fashioned story of education and intrigue on the prairie, we hosted events that evoked the time-period and themes central to the plot. From an old-fashioned hoe down and horse show to a police captain’s talk about people living secret lives in Lake Oswego and even a spelling bee, we brought the novel to life in our community.
