PETE SOUZA

From Powell’s website: When Pete Souza left the White House in 2017, he didn’t know what it meant to “throw shade” — but he started doing it almost immediately on his personal Instagram account, posting his photographs from the Obama years with captions that vividly define the contrast between the Obama White House and President Trump’s administration. Media organizations caught on and couldn’t stop talking about Souza’s posts, with New York magazine calling them “a master class in shade,” CNN describing them as “a silent, social media, shade-throwing protest told in visuals,” and Politico naming him “King of Instagram Shade.” Souza’s following on Instagram has since grown to nearly two million people. Souza’s new book, Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents, is a portrait in…

A Shared City: Native Americans in Early Portland History

The first written histories of our city never mentioned that Portland’s recently arrived white residents were outnumbered three to one by the Native Americans who lived along the Willamette River at the foot of Jefferson Street and other sites around Portland. Portland historian Tracy J. Prince, Ph.D., recently uncovered this completely neglected part of Portland’s history, and in this presentation, she will share rare photos and early stories about Native Americans in Portland. Made possible by The Library Foundation through support from The Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Fund. [from the Multnomah County Library site]

Intro to Risograph Printing

From IPRC’s website: In this 4-hour introductory course, participants will learn the basics of risograph (riso) printing and will leave with an understanding of how to use this print technology to create zines, fliers, posters, or other printed matter. While this technology is not new, riso printing has recently become one of the most exciting developments in independent printing and publishing because of its cost-effectiveness for print runs between 25 and 1,000. Workshop participants will learn how to best maximize the many quirks of riso printing to achieve striking results. Participants are also encouraged to bring files of artwork that they’d like to print (files should be 100% grayscale, letter or tabloid size). For more information on riso printing and the modern riso resurgence, check…

Lacy M. Johnson in Conversation With Lidia Yuknavitch

From Powell’s website: In 2014, Lacy Johnson was giving a reading from The Other Side, her memoir of kidnapping and rape, when a woman asked her what she would like to happen to her rapist. Johnson’s new essay collection, The Reckonings (Scribner), is a meditative extension of that answer, drawing from philosophy, art, literature, mythology, anthropology, film, and other fields, as well as Johnson’s personal experience, to consider how our ideas about justice might be expanded beyond vengeance and retribution to include acts of compassion, patience, mercy, and grace. Johnson will be joined in conversation by Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Misfit’s Manifesto and The Book of Joan. Preorder a signed edition of Reckonings Essays
