YOUNG EMERGING AUTHORS BOOK LAUNCH

INFO
Tuesday, August 15 2017
4:00 PM TO 5:00 PM

The Telling Room presents a reading and celebration of four exotic new titles:

  • YOU CAN EAT THAT? A Cookbook of Invasive Species from Coastal Maine, by 17-year-old phenom Oliver Curtis;
  • TRAIT, a science-fiction novella by Freeport’s own Aidan Trotter;
  • ABOUT THE BONES, a YA murder mystery thriller by the ghoulish Olivia Peelen;
  • and THE STARS ARE THE SAME EVERYWHERE, an illustrated semi-autobiographical novel by Iraqi-born, motorcycling, airplane-jumping, writer/artist, and proud Portlander Maryam Abdullah.

This event is free and open to the public. This year’s crop of Young Emerging Authors will address the audience and read from their books, which will be available for purchase and signing. 

THIS SATURDAY! Waking Windows Portland is in Metamorphosis. Join us for 10 bands & performances, 15 authors, 1 big record fair, family art activities, and more across 6 Congress St. venues.
