Please join Southwest Neighborhoods Equity and Inclusion Committee for a “Conversation with Laura O. Foster.” Foster writes guidebooks about Portland and the Pacific Northwest. Her books take readers on explorations of a city's or region's geology, architecture, history, neighborhoods, urban centers, parklands, and human and natural history.
The day with Ms. Foster will begin with a Talk 10am - 12pm, wherein she will discuss her books and her experiences in storytelling. Refreshments will be provided in the morning session.
The second part of the day will be a Workshop 1pm - 3pm, wherein Foster will lead participants on how she approaches an area, how she looks at maps, how she collects data, and documents her notes, and then finally how she turns this into a story.
