Sanctuaries

Gentrification in Portland and the city’s redlining past go under the microscope in Darrell Grant’s jazz-classical chamber opera, Sanctuaries, with a libretto by two-time National Poetry Slam Champion Anis Mojgani and directed by Alexander Gedeon. Focusing on personal stories from the Albina neighborhood, this latest site-specific commission challenges Portland as a community to truly listen to and acknowledge marginalized voices while addressing issues of white privilege, racial equity and inclusion, and economic disparity.

Storm Wrack & Spindrift Book Launch with Margaret Pinard

Possibly our last event for 2019 features one of our very own booksellers, Margaret Pinard! She is launching her fifth historical novel, Storm Wrack & Spindrift, which concludes the three-book Remnants series: The MacLeans have suffered being thrown off their land, emigrating to the New World, surviving in the forest wilderness, and losing their father Gillan in a bizarre murder. Now, ten years later, the two youngest emigrants split the family across an ocean: Sheena and her husband Gordon Lamont pursue a future back in Scotland while Alisdair dreams of university and a chance to reform the political system.
