Matt Love’s latest book, “Love and the Green Lady,” is a wonderful tribute to the Yaquina Bay Bridge on her 75th birthday. It’s a wonderful book, but it defies easy categorization.

Awesome--I've driven across this bridge many times and never really appreciated it--now I've got to head to Newport and really check it out.

Thanks, Matt!
