ENTERPRISE – Fishtrap will host a spring lecture series featuring stories and slideshows from Wallowa County locals.

The presentations will occur Thursday, April 18, and Tuesday, April 23, and will be given by Judy Allen and David Jensen, respectively. Both lectures will be held at 7 p.m. at the Fishtrap Coffin House and are free and open to the public.

“100 Years Later: Abigaul Scott Duniway –Writer, Businesswoman and Leader in Women’s Right to Vote Management” is the title of Judy Allen’s presentation on April 18.

Allen, a resident of Wallowa County and a native Oregonian, will share her research into the absorbing life of Abigail Scott Duniway, whose devotion to her family and the concerns of women, along with her writing and independent thinking, led to her becoming the force behind the women’s suffrage movement in the Northwest. 

In 2012, Enterprise photographer and mountain climber David Jensen took his cameras to India. “Misadventures in India,” Jensen’s slide show account of the ten weeks he spent in exotic and often appalling locations, will be presented April 23.

It consists of still photos, video clips, and occasional interviews with characters he met along the way.

In India Jensen climbed a 20,000-foot mountain in the Himalayas and hung out with fractious Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Sikhs.

He also survived the most dangerous road in the world on his way to joining thousands of monks and an international cast of rapt tourists for a four day “teaching” by the Dalai Lama.
