Oregon Hysterical Society

OK, this could be a blast!

SunriverI’m going to be among the scads of authors at the Oregon Historical Society’s Oregon Authors Celebration, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, at 1200 S.W. Park Ave.

A galley of writers* will be there. Whatever your taste in the written word, you’ll find the author there for you. Check out the list. Among them will be best-selling mystery writer Phil Margolin.

(Years ago, a fellow journalist, John Grund, suggested that the cumulative term for a group of writers should be “a galley.” First, because galleys are the proofs that we used to use, back in the day. And second … well, slaves rowing a ship. John and I worked in community newspapers. ‘Nuff said.)

(Annie) Bloom’s Day

To kick off the paperback release of ICE COLD KILL, I’ll be at Annie Bloom’s, 7834 S.W. Capitol Highway in my old ’hood, Multnomah Village, from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 30.

The reason is to celebrate Small Business Saturday. This is a good day for Oregonians to support their locally owned retail shops. And what better choice in Portland than an independent bookstore? None whatsoever.

Annie’s is one of the best independent bookshops in the nation. If you haven’t yet made this store a regular haunt, you should.ICE COLD KILL
