A Celebration of Local Authors and Award Winning Literature
Sunday, March 6, 2011 - 5:00pm to Sunday, March 6, 2011 - 7:30pm

We've gathered local authors and musicians to help support Portland's writing community and donate to a good cause. The event is only $5 or you can get in for FREE by bringing two non-perishable food items to be donated to ASPSU Student Pantry food bank.

Here's what you get for the low-low price of free.

Emily Chenoweth, the author of the novel Hello, Goodbye and the recent recipient of the Oregon Literary Fellowship in Fiction. Her work has appeared in Tin House, Book forum and People among other publications.

Margaret Malone is the recipiant of the Oregon Literary Fellowship and the Individual Artist Fellowship from the Oregon Arts Commission. Her work has appeared in The Missouri Review, Swink, The Wordstock Ten Anthology and among other publications.

Gigi Little's work has appeared in Portland Noir and The Pacific Northwest Reader among other publications.

Nora Robertson's work has appeared in such publications as Plazm, Redactions and Portland Monthly. Her recipe poem, "How to Boil an Egg," was nominated by Redactions for the 2007 Pushcart Prize.

Not only do you get those fantastic writers but we'll also be featuring writers from Portland State's writing community.

Also we'll have the wonderful musical intermission brought to you by local band Leaves Russell playing from their recently released album Tale of Two Basements. They are four semi-mature, quasi-human beings barely meet to form the music you're about to hear. Some say it was fate that brought these boys together. Some say it was the internet. Either way Leaves Russell is just what you didn't know you needed.

When: March 6th

Where: Backspace
115 NW 5th Ave.
