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!

Virtual Book Club: Strong Female Protagonist

May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207


Skype with comics friends! This week, let’s talk about Strong Female Protagonist by Molly Ostertag.

“SFP follows the adventures of a young middle-class American with super-strength, invincibility and an overwhelming sense of social injustice.”

A great read for those who like superheros, but wish they were a little less in the Marvel/DC zone.

In this time of virtual access, we’re switching over to some web comics! Click here to read the first 3 issues online. https://strongfemaleprotagonist.com/issue-1/page-0/

OR check if we have any of the physical volumes by emailing bookswpictures@gmail.com with STRONG FEMALE PROTAGONIST in the subject line and we’ll work it out. NOTE: Orders may not arrive in time for book club!

Join the chat at the skype link above!
