On Sunday, April 26th, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm, author Bill Hall will be on hand at the Pacific Maritime & Heritage Center to give a talk and sign copies of his new book, “McCallandia.”

McCallandia is a novel of alternative history based on the premise that Tom McCall became Richard Nixon’s successor as President of the United States. Readers will see history change when McCall brings his candor and environmental ethic to Washington. In addition to the very memorable McCall, McCallandia features a cast of outsized supporting personalities: Richard Nixon, Hunter S. Thompson, John Lennon, Ken Kesey, Steve Prefontaine and many others.

Lincoln County Commissioner Bill Hall is the author of McCallandia, which is based on 40 years of admiration for Tom McCall and was the product of extensive research and numerous interviews. An Oregon native, Hall spent many years in journalism before making the transition to elective office. He was a volunteer in McCall’s 1978 comeback campaign and met the former governor several times.

Admission to this event is free for members, and $5 for non-members. Refreshments will be served. The book is available for purchase at both Lincoln County Historical Society Museums. For more information, call (541) 265-7509.
