Literary Ashland with Paul Fattig

Paul FattigOur August guest was retired journalist Paul Fattig. Born in Kerby, Oregon, Paul wrote for many of the newspapers in Southern Oregon and beyond. In 2001, Paul and his wife Maureen bought a burnt out shell of a cabin along Sterling Creek, about 10 miles from Jacksonville. Once retired, Paul told the story of renovating that shell and turning it into a family home. That story became the book Up Sterling Creek Without A Paddle. In our interview, Paul talks about writing, the challenges involved in renovation, and his new project about two uncles who became draft evaders in World War I.
