Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

2 very different writers headline May WordFest

Two very different mystery writers are featured for the May WordFest set for next Tuesday viz Zoom, 7-8 p.m.

Ellie Alexander is the author of the Bakeshop Mystery series, set in Ashland, home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and featuring artisan pastry chef, Juliet Montague Capshaw, who runs her family bakeshop, Torte, and solves murder cases on the side.

Alexander will discuss and read from her newest titles in the 15-book and counting series, Mocha, She Wrote and Chilled to the Cone.

Rick E. George from White Salmon writes a very different kind of mystery. Cooper’s Loot (The Wild Rose Press) is his latest novel, set in the Dark Divide wilderness between Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams. It revolves around the northwest folklore of hijacker D.B. Cooper and the search for the money with which he parachuted from a Boeing 727 in 1971.

George's career includes being a sportswriter, a wildland firefighter, and an educator. He is also the author of Vengeance Burns Hot, published by Unsolicited Press (2019).

WordFest is a monthly gathering of local writers and readers, celebrating the joy and magic of words, with public readings, discussions, and networking opportunities. In-person events were suspended in March 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic, and monthly one-hour events on Zoom were launched in October.

The WordFest on Zoom events are free and open to the public. One doesn’t need to have a Zoom account to participate, but one must register for the free, monthly WordFest newsletter at to receive the Zoom invitation by email.
