OWC donates books in honor of Fran Strouse to Oregon Public Library


OREGON — The Oregon Woman's Club has presented three books to the Oregon Public Library in honor of the group's past president, Fran Strouse, who passed away earlier this year after a long battle with cancer. Fran served as OWC president for 10 years and was an active member of the group even after her term in office. She was an avid reader and loved her Boston Terriers. Born in Georgia, she lived in Oregon for many years and was often seen around town and at the library.

The first book is the adult novel, "The Mostly True Story of Tanner and Louise" by Colleen Oakley. It is the story of a road trip across Georgia by an unlikely couple, a reluctant caregiver and her equally reluctant ward full of humor and mystery.  "Zorro, The Boston Terrier: Accidentally Locked Out" tells of the adventures of Zorro when he finds himself confronted by a difficult problem, a picture book for beginning readers. "Horace and Bunwinkle" is another Boston Terrier adventure for middle school readers, All three books are now available for checkout at the library. 

The books were shown to Fran's family at the library, and each one has a label honoring Fran inside.
