'THE DIARY OF WILL POMEROY' (DEC. 6): Co-editor Susanna Campbell Kuo will be on hand from 7-8 p.m. Thursday when the Lake Oswego Public Library celebrates the release of a revised and expanded edition of "The Diary of Will Pomeroy." Pomeroy was 14 and the oldest son of the superintendent of the Oswego Mines when he started keeping a diary on Jan. 1, 1883. His entries offer a rare glimpse of everyday life in early Lake Grove, when Oswego was the center of iron making on the Pacific Coast. The library acquired the diary in 2008 from an East Coast bookseller and published a limited number of copies in 2009. Because of continued requests for the book, the library decided to publish a second edition, which has been revised and expanded to include new information. The book can be purchased at the library for $28.
