Wordstock This Weekend
Our Portland Story Volume One will be available for sale at the Wordstock Book Fair this Saturday and Sunday – October 9th and 10th at the Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE MLK Jr. Blvd from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Find the book at the p:ear booth. p:ear is an organization that creatively mentors homeless street youth, and I have personally been volunteering with them for two years. The book will be on sale for $28, cash or check only, and $6 from every book sold will go directly to p:ear. I will be volunteering at the booth personally from 2:00-6:00 on Saturday.
Delivery by Bike
Our Portland Story is offering free bike delivery of books to the inner Portland Metro area for those who enter “PDX Bike Delivery” in the city field when purchasing books online. We will bike deliver the books right to your door within a week. We thought this would be a fun way to get some exercise, and create a fun promo!
Art Opening and Readings at Backspace in November
We are also happy to announce a save the date notice for our second event, an art show and reading event at Backspace – 115 NW 5th Ave. The fine folks at Backspace have graciously offered their gallery space for the month of November. The curator will be choosing pages from the book that we will have enlarged, printed, framed and displayed in the gallery. The gallery will officially open on November 4th, in a First Thursday evening event party. That night we will have readings, music, drinks, etc. I will notify you if you are an author or designer whose page is chosen to be displayed. Until then, save the date!
