Host Marianne Barisonek interviews Susan Stoner, author of Timber Beasts. Stoner , general counsel at Portland-headquartered Amalgamated Transit Union Local 757 — worked in her free time to develop a series of historical mysteries set in the Portland of 1902. Now the first published installment is in print, and is garnering favorable reactions from local historians and labor history buffs. Jim Strassmeier, longtime oral historian for the Oregon Historical Society, called it a “unique, genre-crossing novel” that “combines rousing adventure with accurate back-to-the-past details.”
