Oregon State Capitol Foundation Speaker Series has set programming for Women’s History Month in March.
During her years of public service, spanning the 1970s through the early 2000s, Norma Paulus occupied a distinctive niche in Oregon’s progressive political ecosystem. Her vivid personality and strong convictions endeared her to a broad swath of citizens. Engaging and opinionated, charming and forceful, Paulus was widely covered in statewide and national newspapers and television during her eventful, sometimes controversial career. Now, The Only Woman in the Room documents her life and work in a lively, anecdotal history that will appeal to historians, political scientists, newshounds, and ordinary citizens alike.
"Bev Clarno's political skills took root in childhood on a farm in Eastern Oregon where she was expected to haul as much pig slop as her brother. No whining. No complaining. She grew up to become Oregon's Speaker of the House where she was nobody's snowflake. Two decades later, she's still nobody's snowflake. Her rendition of the record is a treasure," Senator Betsy Johnson.
These titles will be for sale at the Oregon Capitol Store and author’s will be available after their respective talks to sign books. The Oregon State Capitol Foundation Speaker Series is streamed online at www.oregonlegislature.gov and it is sponsored by the Capitol History Gateway Project.
