Author Talk: William L. Sullivan

Author William L. Sullivan presents his latest works, a hiking guide for Southern Oregon and the strange story of ‘80s guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. 

Sullivan has written 22 books about Oregon hiking, history, and mystery. For this entertaining slide show he discusses two of his latest works, an updated hiking guide for Southern Oregon and a murder mystery about the Rajneeshees. How does he manage it? By literally switching hats ever ten minutes as he describes new trails nearby – and also tells the strange story of the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, the guru who brought thousands of followers to an Eastern Oregon ranch in the 1980s.

Sullivan writes an outdoor column for the Eugene Register-Guard and the Salem Statesman-Journal. His journal of a 1000-mile hike across Oregon, Listening for Coyote, was chosen by the Oregon Cultural Heritage Commission as one of Oregon’s “100 Books.”
