We stand with Black Lives Matter and those protesting for equality and reform. 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 annual celebration of Jolabokaflod, the Icelandic Yule Book Flood! While Icelanders celebrate on Christmas Eve Portland will be celebrating in late December. This year, it will be online, as the world is uncertain and we want everyone to feel safe and enjoy their holidays!
The event is all about celebrating and supporting local Pacific Northwest indie authors. When it’s in person, it’s a book fair with many author and bookish vendors with music and spirits. 2020 will take us in a different direction. More on this to come, but you’ll still get to learn about new authors, hear about their books, their inspiration, and connect with fellow literary minded folk (should that aspect appeal to you).
Please join us to support PNW authors and learn a little about the Jolabokaflod spirit!
