On August 31 we had the pleasure of hosting Willy Vlautin and Matt Love at Broadway Books. I split the event into two separate videos, because they were both so spectacular. Matt teaches English and journalism at Newport High School. For ten years he was caretaker of the Nestucca Bay National Wildlife Refuge on the coast. He was awarded Oregon Literary Arts' Stewart H. Holbrook Literary Legacy Award in 2009. His new memoir, Gimme Refuge: The Education of a Caretaker, tells the story of the coming together of his teaching, his caretaking of the land, his writing, and his activism.
