Climbing Portland's Stairs with Laura Foster

Here's another recently edited video from our Fall Reading Series -- progress is happening! This is one of our favorite Portland guides, Laura O. Foster (author of Portland Hill Walks and Portland City Walks) talking about her most recent book, The Portland Stairs Book, a delightful pocket-size guide to almost all of the wonderful staircases our city has to offer. Don't try to adjust your computer at the beginning of Laura's talk to make it brighter -- we had the lights down low so we could watch photographs of some of the stairs on her computer. It sort of reminds me of sleepovers, where someone would hold a flashlight by her chin shining up on her face and then tell spooky stories. Laura tells us stories, alright, but not particuarly spooky ones. Enjoy!
