Penelope Scambly Schott’s most recent book is HOW I BECAME AN HISTORIAN. She lives in Portland and Dufur, Oregon. Every week she and the family dog Lily Schott Sweetdog abandon their guy for three days to live an alternate life in Dufur, a wheat-growing magical town of 600 people on the east side of Mount Hood. The town motto is “See what Dufur can do for you.” If you want to know more about Dufur, see Penelope’s book LOVESONG FOR DUFUR. Her website is penelopescamblyschott.com.
