Crazy Eights Hit Broadway Books!

Usually when we host a reading at Broadway Books, we feature one terrific author. Sometimes -- such as in our monthly Comma Reading Series -- we feature two terrific authors. On even rarer occasions we feature three terrific authors, such as at our Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups, featuring Lidia Yuknavitch, Chelsea Cain, and Chuck Palahniuk. This week we're setting a new Olympic record (ok, maybe not an Olympic record, but certainly a Broadway Books record) by featuring EIGHT terrific authors. Yes, I said eight.

George Wright, a Portland-based novelist and great friend of indie booksellers, has organized an Oregon tour with a rotating cast of eight wonderful regional authors reading at eight locations in Oregon. Broadway Books is thrilled to be serving as the Portland location for this once-in-a-lifetime event (ok, make that an eight-times-in-a-lifetime event) at 7 pm on Thursday, October 4th. (Yes, this despite the fact that Sunday's Oregonian insisted the event is taking place at the Hood River Library. It's not. At least not this Thursday.)

Take a gander at the list of authors we'll be featuring at the store on Thursday evening: Brian Doyle, Jane Kirkpatrick, Naseem Rahka, James Bernard Frost, April Henry, Phillip Margolin, Ron Lovell, Robert Dugoni, and, of course, the mastermind behind this whirlwind of a reading, George Byron Wright, who will serve as emcee. Holy guacamole!!

We hope you can join us for this whopping good time. You can read more about each of the authors on the events page of our website.

Hope to see you there!
