Update 4: Two local Relief Funds for small businesses and artists have been set up if you’d like to apply for support or offer donations. They are the Portland Small Business Relief Fund and the Portland Area Artist Emergency Relief Fund. Literary Portland is not personally associated with either of the funds, so, please direct all questions etc. to their respective organizations.

Update 2: A “stay at home” order has been issued by Gov. Kate Brown. See also this FAQ from OPB. Until the order is lifted, you can assume all in-person readings and events have been cancelled. We’ll continue to update things to match organization and stores’ calendars etc., but heed Brown’s orders and updates from officials on proper actions. Hope you all can stay safe, healthy, and cozy with a good book at home!

Note: Be sure to double-check the event sources (found near the bottom of each event page) for sudden cancellations due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) related issues or measures. Literary Portland will not be able to stay up to date on all event cancellations, but will make updates when possible. Also, please don’t panic-buy toilet paper.

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!

Guy McPherson on Climate Change

Free
Mother Foucault’s Bookshop, 523 SE Morrison St, Portland, OR 97214 + Google Map

Join Dr. Guy McPherson on Friday, May 3 at 7 pm for a presentation and discussion on abrupt climate change.

McPherson will be “connecting the dots” from the peer-reviewed literature regarding climate change and our response. He will elaborates on what to expect as a result of ongoing and projected impacts.

Dr. McPherson is an energetic speaker and talented moderator. He has appeared before countless audiences to speak about the two primary consequences of our fossil-fuel addiction: global climate change and energy decline. Because these phenomena impact every aspect of life on Earth, his talks reach a wide variety of audiences such as universities, associations, nonprofits, and numerous educational and scientific symposia and conferences.

McPherson is Professor Emeritus of Conservation Biology at the University of Arizona, where he taught and conducted research for twenty award-winning years. His scholarly work, which has for many years focused on conservation of biological diversity, has produced more than a dozen books and more than 100 articles. He has been featured on TV and radio and in several documentary films. He is a blogger, cultural critic, and co-host of his own radio show, “Nature Bats Last.”

There is no charge for the presentations but goodwill donations are appreciated. All donations go to McPherson so that he can continue his work.
