So far twenty-four authors have signed up for the West Linn book festival, and I have taken the liberty of attaching the flier on those speaking and also a list of the names of the authors attending, including their websites. It’s kind of interesting that some of the authors are older than me, one of them is 95 and quite a few are in their 80’s. I feel like a child next to them
At least three of the authors are Jewish, including book fair organizer Dr. Veronica Esagui, and will share their books at the fair.
Book festival organizer Veronica Esagui grew up in Portugal as a minority among less than 20 Jewish families in a largely Catholic country, and came to the United States in 1962. Dr. Esagui will be speaking at 12:30 and a “Free Spinal Analysis and Counseling” will be offered. Dr. Veronica is the international critically acclaimed author of The Scoliosis Self-Help Resource Book (English and Japanese). She is also the author of Veronica’s Diary series, Age of Innocence, Braving a New World, Awakening the Woman Within, Angels Among Us and The Gift and, Aged to Perfection (play).
Ruth Lindemann will be speaking at 1:30. She was born in 1933 in Vienna, Austria, and
came to US in 1940. Ruth lives in Portland. She has been a lecturer on the speaker’s Bureau for the Holocaust Resource Center in Portland, OR and recently at the
Tolerance Education Center in Rancho Mirage, California. Her book
“To Survive Is Not Enough” is a historical fiction based on the collection of hundreds of stories told to Ruth over the last fifty years.

“This event, which I started nine years ago in my parking lot, was so successful that the following seven years I organized it at the Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland as The NW Annual Book Festival. After seven years I donated it to 9Bridges a writers group in Portland and they have been running it since then,” says Dr. Esagui. “I guess I miss the fun of putting a book festival together and decided that I would put one on again but since so many authors have signed up to participate it has taken over the parking lot next to me, which is the reason for two addresses.
