This week’s Guild meeting features Sisters author Bill Birnbaum who will present his memoir, A Lifetime of Small Adventures.
In his book, Bill recounts his various adventures from his mischievous boyhood to his mountain climbing adulthood, and he relates lessons learned along the way. Following his retirement from a career as a business consultant, Bill and his wife Wendy traveled to Arequipa, Peru, where they found volunteer opportunities in a poor community in the Peruvian Andes. During their subsequent travels, they discovered Sisters, Oregon, where they now live and where Bill is working on another book.

Please note: The Thursday March 22 meeting location is COCC’s Redmond Campus, 2030 College Loop SE, Building 3 Room 306, 6:30–9pm.
