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 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!

Teen Book Club
September 12, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
The Books Around the Corner Teen Book Club is ran by the teens who attend. No adults allowed. The teens have chosen Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard for the month of September. If you’re a teen interested in choosing the next book you are still more than welcome to attend! The group has also chosen to include a second book if you can’t get enough with one book! Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.
Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood — those with common, Red blood serve the Silver-blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.
Available at a 15% discount to order if you plan on attending the book club. Email us to order it or come in!
