Loggernaut is upon us, and we're mixing it up a little this time:
Literary Arts is hosting Loggernaut as a sort of reading-in-residence
at their lovely downtown Portland digs. So, come downtown this Thursday
evening for three great readers and something to sip on.
"Pieces" is the prompt; Dan DeWeese, Carter Sickels, and
Coleman Stevenson bring the words (more about them below).
925 SW Washington, 7:30pm, free and open to the public.
Hope you can make it!
