Doyle to speak to LCA on writing


Lakewood Center Associates will hold a meeting and luncheon Sept. 15 at the Lakewood Center for the Arts in Lake Oswego.

Guest speaker will be award-winning author, essayist and editor Brian Doyle, speaking on his literary pursuits since his acclaimed novel, “Mink River” was published. The novel was the selected title for the 2012 citywide reading program, Lake Oswego Reads.

Doyle, who lives in Lake Oswego, was born in New York and then moved to Boston, where he became a dedicated Red Sox fan. He now considers himself a true Oregonian, and his work reflects that Northwest influence.

The Associates is a group of volunteers whose mission is to promote the welfare and service the needs of the Lakewood Center for the Arts. The group oversees fundraising events and manages the Re-Runs shop, a consignment and gift shop selling furniture, jewelry, antiques and housewares.

The group’s luncheon, featuring Doyle, will be in the community room of the Lakewood Center, 368 S. State St., Lake Oswego. The group welcomes new members and others to participate in the monthly luncheon programs. The business meeting begins at 10:30 a.m., followed by the program and lunch at 11 a.m.

The charge for lunch is $10. Anyone interested in attending the Sept. 15 luncheon can make a reservation by calling 503-620-9092 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Sept. 9.
