Attention, fellow book-nerds! Our time is now! Portland’s giant book festival, Wordstock, arrives this weekend, with a jam-packed day of author events, panels, workshops, and readings, AND A HUGE BOOK FAIR WHERE YOU CAN BUY BOOKS FROM LOCAL PRESSES AND SELLERS. Whew! Sorry, I’m just thrilled. You will be too, because literary giants including Ta-Nehisi Coates, Jeffrey Eugenides, and Claire Messud will be at Wordstock this year, plus local greats like the Decemberists’ Colin Meloy; Carson Ellis, whose illustrations I would like to make into a house; Bitch Planet’s Kelly Sue DeConnick; winsome comics artist Nicole Georges; Chuck Klosterman, who lives here now; and many, many others.
