This panel builds upon the groundbreaking new anthology, Reading Portland, one of the first thorough literary explorations of our city's past and present. In over eighty selections, Portland is revealed through histories, memoirs, autobiographies, short stories, novels, and new reports. This single volume gives voice to women and men; the colonizers and the colonized; white, Hispanic, African American, Asian American, and Native American storytellers; and the lower, middle, and upper classes.
