Rubin’s Portland plays in online course

Two of Rich Rubin’s full-length plays that examine Portland’s troubled racial history, LEFT HOOK and COTTONWOOD IN THE FLOOD, will be featured in an online course.

Offered August 2–6, 2021, by Lewis & Clark’s Oregon Writing Project in collaboration with Vanport Mosaic.  

The course is designed as a curriculum-building exercise for educators, with the goal of encouraging students to write about local history as well as their personal experiences. Facilitated by OWP director Linda Christensen and Damaris Webb, co-director of Vanport Mosaic.
