150 Books for Oregon's Sesquicentennial

150 Books for Oregon's Sesquicentennial"To help commemorate Oregon's sesquicentennial, the State Library is pleased to announce the Oregon 150 Booklist. The list consists of 150 books for children, teens and adults that describe the Oregon experience, including fiction, non-fiction, history, and poetry. The books are available in libraries and bookstores and are highly recommended for all Oregonians to read during the sesquicentennial. The books present a comprehensive view of the Oregon experience, including the stories and voices of the tribes that inhabited Oregon for millennia to those of the many cultures that live here today. The oldest book on the list is Astoria: or, Anecdotes of an Enterprize Beyond the Rocky Mountains by Washington Irving, originally published in 1836. The newest book is Oregon at Work: 1859-2009 by Art Ayre and Tom Fuller, that will be published this spring by Ooligan Press"
