Driftwood Public Library is delighted to welcome local novelist Barton Howe to speak about his new novel, Beach Slapped, on Saturday, November 19th at 3:00 p.m.
Howe is a high school teacher and humor columnist who has spent most of the last 10 years teaching, being a mascot and generally not being near as funny as he thinks he is. A former newspaper reporter, hotel manager, aquarium diver, stand-up comedian, forcibly retired Disney on Ice performer and professional mascot, Howe has combined his experiences and skills from all of those environments to create writing with a voice like no other. Living proof that you don’t need hurricanes blowing the palm trees sideways to get beach slapped time and again.
He currently resides in the only small town on the Oregon coast that has seven miles of coastline and not one boat dock. He is married to the most patient woman on earth and is father to the cutest daughter in the universe, who got all of her looks from her mother.
Barton Howe’s appearance is free and open to anyone who wishes to attend. Driftwood Public Library is located on the 2nd floor of the City Hall building in Lincoln City at 801 SW Highway 101, next to the Price and Pride grocery store. Any question about this or other events may be directed to Ken Hobson at 541-996-1242 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
