Join us for a reading from The Magnificent Losers by local author Gregg Coodley!
The Magnificent Losers tells the stories of twenty of history’s greatest reformers and fighters for freedom from injustice, who were seemingly unsuccessful in their battle to improve the world. Yet perhaps they did not lose after all, for the ideas they fought for lived on. The stories sweep over two thousand years of history, from the Roman Republic to the 20th century, and across the globe from the Russian steppes to the jungles of Peru and from the streets of Boston to the mountains of the Philippines. Despite their apparent defeat, these heroes and heroines helped create a better world.
Gregg Coodley graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Economics before attending the University of California School of Medicine. He has been a practicing primary care physician in Portland for 27 years. He helped found and manages the Fanno Creek Clinic in SW Portland, where he continues his internal medicine practice.
