Join us at the library or online Saturday, November 11th at 2 p.m. for a talk with author, teacher, and retired fisherman Terry Evers. He will discuss his memoir “Fifteen Seasons.”
Evers’ memoir chronicles his early days on a dory boat along the Oregon coast. He and his father enter the heart of commercial salmon trolling and experience the characters, culture, and harrowing adventures that make the industry.
Terry also worked in the U.S. Coast Guard and has spent the past 33 years in elementary education. Books will be available for purchase and signing after the event.
“Each chapter of Evers’ “Fifteen Seasons” starts with a playlist of songs popular at the time, beginning in the summer of 1977. A unique addition is the integration of music and how certain songs became benchmarks. An example would be how the songs “Silly Love Songs” by Paul McCartney and “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac were so much a part of the fabric either of the overall culture or as a personal experience.”- National Fisherman
“As much as it is a tribute to a way of life that won’t be returning, Fifteen Seasons is also a tribute to Terry’s father” – Newport News Times
