Lori Tobias, former coast writer for The Oregonian newspaper, will hold a virtual launch for her new book Storm Beat: A Journalist Reports from the Oregon Coast Tuesday, Sep. 1, at 6 p.m. Pacific Time.
The launch will be sponsored by the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita and viewable on-line via Zoom. Pre-registration is required.

Tobias was a columnist and feature writer for the Rocky Mountain News before moving to Newport, Oregon in 2000, where she began working as a freelancer, stringer and staff writer for The Oregonian for 20 years.
The book is based on her reporter’s notes and journals kept during those years as she reported high-profile stories, such as car crashes, falls, drownings, and capsizings, as well as violent crimes such as the infamous Christian Longo murders in 2001, and a shocking murder/suicide in Manzanita in 2010.
