CityWise: Breakfast with the Toulan School

From Proper Portland to Portlandia:
How a Conservative City Got Hip
with Professor Carl Abbott

Cautious, calm, conservative--that's how observers described Portland for its first hundred years. Now the adjectives are "hip," "hot," and "happening." Which is the true Portland? Have we really changed?

Carl Abbott will draw on more than three decades of thinking and writing about Portland history to reflect on the character of the city and explore the roots of its newly found fame.
