Wordstock: Portland’s Book Festival builds community around literature through author events, workshops, a book fair and more.
Literary Arts is excited to announce that Wordstock: Portland’s Book Festival will re-launch as a one-day event at the beautiful Portland Art Museum on Saturday, November 7, 2015.
The festival will include author events, readings and activities for readers of all ages, an extensive book fair, concerts presented by OPB Music, a beer tent and local food trucks. The weekend of literary celebration will kick off with a special Friday night opening event; details TBA. Schedule details, ticket information for opening night and for the festival, workshop registration, exhibitor applications, and more will be available soon.
Literary Arts is proud to have the opportunity to build on Wordstock’s history. We look forward to collaborating with the incredible group of writers, publishers, volunteers, and funders who have built this celebration of literature into an important cultural moment for Portland and for Oregon.
About Literary Arts: Founded in 1984, Literary Arts is a community-based nonprofit literary organization located in downtown Portland. This year we’re celebrating 30 years of serving Oregon’s readers and writers. Our programs include Portland Arts & Lectures, one of the country’s largest lecture series; Oregon Book Awards & Fellowships, which celebrates Oregon’s writers and independent publishers; and Writers in the Schools, which hires professional writers to teach semester-long creative writing workshops in Portland’s public high schools. We also host guided discussion groups around great works of literature through a program called Delve.
The re-launched festival depends on tax-deductible donations from individuals and sponsors. Please consider contributing your support today. Click here to make a donation.
