Printed Matter Vancouver co-founders Christopher Luna and Toni Partington would like to thank everyone who attended our five year anniversary open mic and potluck. You truly make putting on these events a pleasure. It is a great privilege to provide a safe space in which everyone can express themselves. We would also like to thank Cover to Cover owner Mel Sanders for staying open extra late, and for her continuing support of local writers, editors, publishers, and booklovers. We’d also like to thank our musical guests, Jennifer-Pratt Walter, Bret Jorgensen, and Lincoln’s Beard for their beautiful contributions. Finally, thank you to each and every person who attended for your energy, your participation, and your words.
Lincoln’s Beard will be playing a show at the Secret Society Ballroom, 116 NE Russell, Portland tomorrow night at 6pm. The show is free and all ages. For more info: http://www.concertcoop.com/portland/secretsociety/s/88154/Lincoln%27s+Beard#http://secretsociety.net/live-music/
On Saturday at 4pm, April Bullard and Dennis McBride will be the featured readers for a William Stafford birthday celebration at Cover to Cover Books. Bring a Stafford poem to share if you’d like to participate.
