Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing

Heading back to Powell’s at Cedar Hills Crossing, which always draws a great crowd with great questions. So excited to visit the Beaverton location of Powell’s, the world’s greatest bookstore (Eat your heart out, Strand).

I also have had the great good fortune to serve as managing editor of the Beaverton Valley Times and the Washington County Times for the last two years, so this event is near-and-dear to my heart.

Cannon Beach Library

Very excited to do an event for the independent Friends of the Cannon Beach Library in April! This is a great organization of volunteers, taking care of an awesome library. So very excited!

The Cannon Beach Book Co. is participating, too. This is one of the great independent bookstores that dot the state of Oregon and make this state so cool. Craig Johnson, author of the “Longmire” series of mysteries (which are great novels!) once told me he toured through the smaller towns of Oregon on his motorcycle, because he was gobsmacked by the awesome array of indie bookstores this state has to offer. I couldn’t agree with him more. (except for the part about the motorcycle. Yeah, not so much.)

If you need a break and want to experience spring at the Oregon Coast, head to Cannon Beach April 14. A good time will be had by all.

Ladd Tower Book Reading

Looming Large Over Portland

I’ll be speaking on Wednesday, April 17, to the residents of the Ladd Tower at Southwest Jefferson and the Park Blocks in downtown Portland. It’s a great place to live (we live there), within walking distance of everything. We’ve been here for about seven years now and just love it.

The event is open to nonresidents, if you want to stop by. Thanks to the awesome staff at the Ladd for making this event happen!

Book Launch!

So excited to head back to this awesome bookstore in the heart of Multnomah Village! Annie Bloom’s is iconic in Portland (as is the shop cat, Molly). Portland is blessed to have so many great independent bookstores. Annie Bloom’s is a gem!

PS: Not to influence you or anything, but we’ll have cupcakes from a local Multnomah Village shop and wine on hand. Also, Molly. Who’ll stroll languidly through my speech and grab everyone’s attention. It’s OK. I’m used to it.
