The Newport Public Library will host a reading by Dr. John Baker from his latest book, Lost and Found: Lessons from Life, on Saturday, February 4, at 2:00 p.m.
Lost and Found is a collection of short vignettes highlighting everyday and profound situations in Baker’s life. Sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic, the stories bear witness to the author’s search for meaning in the challenges of life.
Baker, a graduate from the University of Oregon and Oregon State University, has taught in high school and college. His other publications include Camp Adair: The Story of a World War II Cantonment; Today, Oregon's Largest Ghost Town, and three works of poetry: Reflections From a Coastal Town, Pacific Shift: and Other Poems, Popcorn Palace and Other Poems.
