This is the last week to take advantage of our sale of 30% off of books from three wonderful publishers who just happen to be in our own backyard: Hawthorne Books, Oregon State University Press, and Tin House Books. Come see us and, while you're here, check out the great window display that Kate made -- white picket fence and all -- highlighting some of those books.
We are exceptionally blessed in Portland in a literary way -- a wealth of accomplished, thought-provoking authors, bookstores and literary organizations that host spirited, interesting book-related events, and publishers of all shapes and sizes. Some of the publishers are one-person, one-book outfits; others rival what you'll find in New York City.
In October we've been celebrating three publishers who make their homes by our sides. Together they publish a fabulous array of books, both fiction and nonfiction -- books for all interests and tastes. Their authors include Scott Nadelson, Lidia Yuknavitch, Monica Drake, Brian Doyle, Robin Cody, Barbara Roberts, Gregory Nokes, Scott Sparling, Sarahlee Lawrence, Harriet Fassenfast, and many many more.
This sale offers a great opportunity to get a head start on your holiday shopping and -- even more exciting -- to explore the works of authors you might not have read before, with minimal risk or financial investment (although given the quality of these publishers, your risk would be minimal anyway).
By the time the kids are out trick-or-treating, this sale will be over, so make sure you end up with a bag of treats for yourself -- literary treats produced in your own backyard!
