LaClair is a 15 year Army veteran as well as a Corrections Officer for over 12 years. He first started writing short stories to share with his family and friends. Although this is his first novel, a few of his short stories were published locally by “The Writers of the Purple Sage”.
Drawing on his life experiences before, during and after his careers in Corrections and Military Intelligence he was able to bring the story of Lincoln County to life. He’s traveled through 48 of the 50 states, Canada, Central America and Europe. He’s worked at NSA, was a crew member on reconnaissance aircraft, military linguist and instructor.
Among the many odd jobs in his life are College Bursar, furniture mover, accounting, assistant to carpet layers and roofers, paperboy and Western Union telegram deliverer. An avid traveler and people watcher, but not the Simon Proctor kind, he hopes to bring you along on this journey.
This free public program is suitable for adults. LaClair will read from his book and offer a short question and answer session before signing books. Copies of books will be available for purchase at the event.

“I am very pleased to have taken this first step on the road to a future library facility to serve the Christmas Valley area. People in North Lake have been very patient in waiting for attention to their facility needs from myself and the library board,’”said Amy Hutchinson, Library Director. Hutchinson also emphasized there are many more steps to complete before a new facility will become a reality.
Next steps include developing preliminary cost models for construction and operation of a new, and then determining how to raise the additional money needed both for construction and operation of a larger facility. Additionally, there is a variety of interior finish work on the Main Library in Lakeview still to be completed.

The Rural Voices on a Changing Land project will arrive at a unique community description of the land and what you see changing using words that are specific to the people of Lake County. At the conversations, you will see images and stories shared by others already and help capture what is unique to Lake County in our own words.
A partnership of Friends of Lake County Library, Lake County Library District, Lake County Resources Initiative, and PLAYA, supported by Oregon Cultural Trust, the Rural Voices project brought the My Lake County Landscape photography shows to Lakeview, Paisley, and Christmas Valley earlier this year, and will soon be launching an interactive map website to collect even more pictures and ideas from Lake County residents.
Questions about the project may be sent to Library Director Amy Hutchinson at 541-947-6019 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lakeview’s own Randy Dary will play and sing, storyteller Christopher Leebrick will tell stories from around the world, and the University of Oregon Museum of Natural and Cultural History will bring us their program “Oregon Rocks!” all about local geology. In the teen program, participants will have a chance to pick out their own cool crafts and activities. Everyone will have the chance to show off their rock and roll personas in the Lake County Libraries float at the Round-up parade.
Each program is eight weeks long, and gives the participant a chance to earn a certificate signed by the governor of Oregon while having fun with their friends and preventing the summer slide in reading skills.
