Author to discuss her latest book at museum



“You’re Never Too Old to Write (the Great American Novel)” is the theme of Thursday’s “Museum After Hours” presentation at the Clark County Historical Museum.

Vancouver author and longtime museum volunteer Charlotte Lewis will discuss expressing our creativity with the written word at 7 p.m. at the museum, 1511 Main St.

Lewis will be reading from her latest book, “The Letters,” which features the museum’s Carnegie Library building. Copies will be available for purchase.

The retired accountant is the author of 12 books, including a series on the Oregon Trail and Oregon Territory inspired by her volunteer work at the museum.

The museum is open for free from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month from February through November for its “Museum After Hours” programs.

This week’s museum schedule also includes two walking tours: a 40-minute tour of four downtown churches ($2 for historical society members, $5 for non-members) is set for noon Friday; a 90-minute architectural tour featuring Donald Stewart buildings ($5 for members and $10 for nonmembers) will start at 9 a.m. Saturday.
