Wordstock 2009

Wordstock is a fabulous celebration of books, writers, and storytelling held in Portland, Oregon every year. They’ve had hundreds of writers perform and a total of over 50,000 patrons attending since 2005. I’ll be doing a reading, by the way, on Saturday October 10th at 2:00 pm, just so’s you know.


There are  ten author stages,  over a hundred exhibit booths, workshops for writers and for K-12 teachers, and (as they say) much much more. Not to brag about my city, but our Wordstock is the largest celebration of literature in the Pacific Northwest, one of the largest of its kind in the whole nation.

This year some of the authors appearing will be: Sherman Alexie, Chelsea Cain, Ethan Canin, James Ellroy, and Scott Westerfeld. And that’s just to name a few. Read the full list (and find out about the dates/hours/tickets/directions) at www.wordstockfestival.com. I hope I see you there. (And I’m not just saying that. You have to try it. It’s a total book-junky buzz.)
