Update 6: Literary Arts has launched the Booth Emergency Fund for Writers and Oregon Humanities is offering emergency funding for organizations. Both have deadlines coming up in May, which have been added to the calendar below.

Update 5: RACC has established an Emergency Artist Relief Fund to which you can apply and donate. They have also set up a page listing other relief resources.

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!

Miriam Toews in Conversation With Leni Zumas

April 30, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209 + Google Map

Based on real events, Miriam Toews’s Women Talking (Bloomsbury) is the story of eight women in a remote Mennonite colony who face an agonizing decision in the aftermath of a series of unspeakable sexual crimes. Toews’s masterful new novel, told through the “minutes” of the women’s all-female symposium, uses wry, politically engaged humor to relate this tale of women claiming their own power to decide. Toews will be joined in conversation by Leni Zumas, author of Red Clocks.
