History Tales to feature author Lonnie Archibald

Author Lonnie Archibald will talk about his new book Old Trucks and Gear Jammers at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales presentation.

Sunday, April 2, at 2:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 110 East 7th Street, Port Angeles. The program will be held in the social hall; parking and entry are on Laurel Street.

Lonnie published this latest book in 2016. He thoroughly enjoyed talking with truckers in Forks, Sequim and Port Angeles and has already interviewed more truckers. The book has been well received in Clallam County as well as Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Montesano and Elma. “It seems truckers are one big family with drivers from all the mentioned towns knowing each other,” says Lonnie.

Archibald was born in Carlsborg in 1942 and moved to Forks in 1957. He and his wife raised their two children on the Sol Duc River. He spent 30 years with Century Tel; after retirement, he was able to spend more time with his passions for writing and photography.

Lonnie is the author of three books, Sturdy Folk, Here on the Home Front – WWII in Clallam County and his latest Old Trucks and Gear Jammers. He will have his past two books available for sale. If you have already purchased one but would like his signature, please feel free to bring your copy along.

History Tales is free and open to the public. For further information, please call
