We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.
We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.
An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.
For details regarding specific events please contact the organizers or venues. If you are an organizer or venue and would like to reach out to us please feel free to contact us or submit an event using our submission form. We’d love to hear from you!

🌟ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION AND SALE!🌟
To celebrate Books with Pictures’ five years in business, we’re having our biggest sale ever, from tomorrow, June 2, through Sunday the 6th! We’ll have selected books and back issues for sale on the sidewalk for 65% off all week starting tomorrow, plus extra sales in store each day:
Wednesday, June 2: Superhero graphic novels are 25% off — and Pup Tent, the awesome new florist in our lot, will be in costume as… well, it’s a surprise.
Thursday, June 3: Zines and small-press comics are 50% off, and nonfiction graphic novels are 25% off.
Friday, June 4: Single issue comics are 75% off. Excludes books released 5/26 and 6/2. Excludes curated $3 back issue section.

Sunday, June 6: Kids’ day! All kids’ books are 25% off, and members of the community cosplay group PDX Avengers will be here from noon to 3 — show off your own cosplay, too!
We’ll be bringing a party atmosphere over the weekend with decorations, our fancy photo backdrop, sidewalk chalk, and whatever other festive details we can cook up. We are NOT throwing a big party, because gatherings are still not the thing to do. Please mask up, and as store capacity is still limited for social distancing, you may need to wait to enter. We are very excited to see you and celebrate together!!
(After the sale, we’ll be closed Monday and Tuesday, June 7 and 8, for inventory… so you may want to stock up in advance.)
SEE YOU ALL SOON 💖
