CANCELED – Maggie Chula and Shawn Aveningo Sanders

We are pleased to host poets Margaret Chula and Shawn Aveningo Sanders at 7 pm on Wednesday, March 25th, to read from their most recent books, Shadow Man and What She Was Wearing, respectively. In Shadow Man, Chula brings her father out of the shadows where he had been since 1957, the day her mother packed their five children—all under the age of ten—into the car and drove away. Over the years, Chula comes to accept the differences between a mother who wants China cups and a father content with Budweiser.

Chula lived in Japan for twelve…

Book Launch: Eighteen: Stories of Mischief & Mayhem

The second volume of the Underland Tarot series has arrived. This one is called Eighteen, and it is symbolic of the great river at night, where the wolves howl and all doors are open. All thresholds are possible, and every truth is elusive. The Eighteenth Tarot card is the Moon, and those who raise their arms to her know she offers Mercy and Severity in equal measure. These are stories of mischief and mayhem. These are stories of magic. Come celebrate the vernal equinox with us and get your copy of Eighteen. The anthology contains several Portland area writers and they’ll be reading their stories! [See also the Facebook event page]
