At the Portland Pickles baseball game June 24, two Catholic writers were on hand to discuss their work.

Linda L. Graham, a member of St. Anne Parish in Gresham, has written a memoir called “Indiana Summer: From Cornfield and Lighting Bugs.” Graham discusses growing up in Indiana and withstanding ridicule. The sometimes humorous story includes a move to Oregon and an enlightenment that comes after a dangerous incident.  

Claudia Mesa has figured out how to make learning a language fun for children. Mesa, a native of Colombia, is owner of Kids Like Languages, which holds classes and sends teachers to 55 Portland-area schools, many of them Catholic. She has led summer language camps and recently has written a book.  

The Pickles play in Lents Park in Southeast Portland. July 8 is set up as a Catholic night at the ballpark, with archbishop John Vlazny attending.
