THE DALLES—Columbia Gorge Discovery Center presents an author booksigning, from 9-11 a.m. Author E.F. Winters will be signing copies of her book, “Memeloose” at the Discovery Center’s Columbia River Trading Company museum store, 5000 Discovery Drive, in The Dalles.

The book is based on a true story from the 1840s of a Native American boy taken from home near Mt. Shasta and sold into slavery on the Columbia. Historic characters including Dr. John McLoughlin, Reverend Henry Perkins and Chief Kamiakin enrich this tale of a boy’s coming-of-age adventures while his faithful dog travels the Pacific Northwest searching for him.

One reader said, “It is a boy and dog story unlike any other.”

Hands-on, multi-media exhibits illuminate the cultural and natural history of the Gorge, including Ice Age geology, Native American culture, Lewis and Clark's cargo, the Oregon Trail, trade, transportation, ecology, and more.
