It is more important than ever to support local, independently-owned bookstores. One of our personal favorites is Another Read Through at 3932 N. Mississippi Ave. in Portland. Owner Elisa Saphier is delightful, personable, and knowledgeable. She allows authors and publishers to hold readings and book launch events in her beautiful second-floor loft, and hosts regular events such as Lesbian Lit Book Group. A generous amount of shelf space is devoted to Northwest authors in all genres.
You can find Ghost Town Poetry volumes one and two, Tiffany Burba’s Meet Me Where I Left You, and Christopher Luna’s Pulitzer Remix chapbook Brutal Glints of Moonlight at Another Read Through.
Printed Matter Vancouver is grateful to Elisa for her service to the literary community, and for carrying our books at her bookstore. We are very proud to be associated with Another Read Through. Show your support by dropping by the store today!

Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic founder Christopher Luna
and Cover to Cover Books owner Mel Sanders
Mel Sanders, who has been keeping the bookstore open late for us since 2007, recently announced that Cover to Cover Books will be closing its doors at the end of January. We are very grateful to Mel for her many years of service to the poetry community and to Northwest writers, and we will miss her and her wonderful bookstore. Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic’s success would not have been possible without her support and her patience.
Fortunately, the series has found a new home. Beginning in February, we will relocate to Angst Gallery, 1015 Main Street in downtown Vancouver, owned by another tireless champion of the arts, Leah Jackson. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit printedmattervancouver.com for more information.
Join Christopher Luna, Toni Partington, and the Vancouver poetry community as we celebrate eight years of open mic poetry at Cover to Cover Books and bid a fond farewell to our favorite bookstore with one more anniversary potluck and open mic poetry reading. Please bring a dish to share.
