Nova Newcomer was born at home on a cold night in January a little over 30 years ago (that should suffice for a while). Or as her dad says, “the year the Trail Blazers won the championship”. No, her parents weren’t hippies and yes, that’s her real name!
Her first political opus was a short essay (which she still has in her possession) in 4th grade on Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. A Political Science degree, several hundred pages and a career later, Nova is currently doing what she loves best — providing people with tools to communicate better and helping women develop their leadership potential.
The Spirit of 77 is a collection of her thoughts on politics, baseball and her very first love, Portland.
