Event Details

Join authors Pat McCord Amacher and Gail Wells as they discuss their book, “The Only Woman in the Room: The Norma Paulus Story” on March 13 at noon in Hearing Room C.

During her years of public service, spanning the 1970s through the early 2000s, Norma Paulus occupied a distinctive niche in Oregon’s progressive political ecosystem. Her vivid personality and strong convictions endeared her to a broad swath of citizens. Engaging and opinionated, charming and forceful, Paulus was widely covered in statewide and national newspapers and television during her eventful, sometimes controversial career. Now, The Only Woman in the Room documents her life and work in a lively, anecdotal history that will appeal to historians, political scientists, newshounds, and ordinary citizens alike. ​

Amacher and Wells will be signing their book after the presentation. Books are sold in the Capitol Store. For more information, contact the Capitol at 503-986-1388.
