Helen Wand Publishes First Book

Alum Helen Wand published a historical novel, Where Eagles Nest, the story of immigrants who settle in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge.

Where Eagles Nest begins in the 1880s when Alex and Juliana Lampert immigrate from Lichtenstein in search of the American dream. The young couple settles in the rugged hills and pasturelands above the Sandy River in Oregon, where they build a farm and, ultimately, a community.

Now an educator, Helen Wand spent most of her career working as a medical technologist, though her true passion was history. Wand is a board member of the Troutdale Historical Society and a member of the Crown Point Country Historical Society and the Oregon Historical Society. She earned a bachelor's degree at Marylhurst in 1960.

Where Eagles Nest is one of several books by alumni available for purchase at the Marylhurst bookstore.
