Spotlighted Literary Events

Apr. 23rd, 7:30 pm: Terry McDermont documents the true story of neuroscientist Gary Lynch's attempt to answer two questions: "What happens in the brain when a human being encounters a new experience so that he or she can recall it at will tonight, tomorrow, in 2025? And what goes wrong when we can't remember?" This event is co-sponsored by the OHSU Brain Institute and hosted at Powell's City of Books on Burnside (1005 W Burnside, Portland).

Apr. 24th & 25th: Stumptown Comics Fest 2010 is invading our town! Featuring everything from book signings to artist talks and DC to zines, this year's festival has something for anyone with a penchant for spandex or sharp writing. The festival costs $6 a day or $10 for a weekend pass. Visit the Doubletree Hotel (1000 NE Multnomah, Portland) to take part in the action!

Apr. 29th, 7:00 pm: Come celebrate in the release party for the Disappearing Book, a reflection on the fragile nature of our different environments. A collection of disappearing things, this book is the product of artist Melody Owen's collaboration with dozens of artists, writers, and musicians. The release party features an exhibit of some of the work documented in the book. This event is free and hosted at the Container Corps Headquarters (1322 N Killingsworth, Portland).
