I’ll be in Portland at Wordstock this weekend slinging books alongside fellow Graywolf Jeff Shotts. The schedule is filled with can’t-miss events featuring Graywolf authors Solmaz Sharif, Angela Palm, Jennifer Grotz, and Jon Raymond. Full details below.

And that’s just Graywolf. Woodstock also has events listed with Colson Whitehead, Yaa Gyasi, Dana Spiotta, Jade Chang, and a whole lot more.

Did I mention that Jon Raymond will be in convo with indie rock icon Carrie Brownstein? No? What an oversight.

Be there, PDXers. I’ll sell you your new favorite book.
