Eugene International Film Festival
New Book Showcases 50-years of Oregon Film History
“Echoes From the Set” by author and filmmaker Katherine Wilson, includes behind the scenes of Oregon films such as “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, “Animal House” and “Stand By Me.” She will be at Thinking Tree Spirits (88 Jackson Street, Eugene, OR) Thursday, July 18th, 5:30 to 8:30 PM to sign copies of her book and share stories with those attending her no-host book signing party.
Many photographs and Oregon film crew member activities punctuate the action that unfolds throughout the book. Oregon celebrities brought to life by the author include Ken Kesey, James Ivory and Springfield based legislator Richard Eymann. Eymann was a film buff, and he wanted movies made in his backyard. Some were due to his efforts, including “The Way West,” filmed in part on Green Island near Coburg, OR. “The Way West” was packed with star-power. Eugene residents met many of them at local food and beverage establishments. Some remained friends throughout their lives.
There is much to enjoy in the reading of “Echoes From the Set.” The book will be available for purchase at the signing party and is on major bookstore shelves nationwide. Grab a copy at the Eugene Airport gift shops to read on your next flight or order it from Amazon.
