Poetry Reading: Carolyn Brigit Flynn & Leah Stenson
Annie Bloom's Books, Wednesday, September 3 at 7pm
Please join us for a reading from these two wonderful poets!

Communion is Carolyn Brigit Flynn's offering of love poems to the earth, addressed in these poems as Beloved. The poems invoke the author’s movement from an urban Catholic childhood into an embodied communion with the sacred presence of the Earth. Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s Book of Hours, each poem uses one of Rilke’s lines as its title and springboard. Communion addresses timeless issues of spiritual awakening, loss and communion, and moves the reader through longing and moments of spiritual aloneness into a vivid connection with the sacred Beloved that is resilient and integrated into the rhythms of daily life.

Portland poet Leah Stenson will be reading from three books of poems. Reverberations from Fukushima, an anthology she co-edited, features contemporary Japanese poetry and essays on the first nuclear disaster of the 21st Century. The Turquoise Bee is an autobiography of love, of individual loves. Fashioned from a sequence of poems, it spans decades and oceans. The poems in Heavenly Body explore the pathos of loss and separation, reveal deeply personal moments in the lives of friends and family, and trace the saga of long-distance love.

Poets Tyler Atwood & John Barrios
Powell's Books on Hawthorne, Sunday, September 21 at 4pm
Tyler Atwood's An Electric Sheep Jumps to Greener Pasture (University of Hell Press) shocks the system and brings words back from the brink. Atwood wields surrealism as a scalpel, dissecting memories, excising internal demons, and flaying rich narrative. With gripping personal narrative in extraordinary context, John W. Barrios's critically imagined first collection of poetry, Here Comes the New Joy (University of Hell Press), exemplifies the magnitude and stamina of the emotional revolution that is the new joy — the sum and the summit of all other emotions and experiences. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_...

Sean Wilsey
Powell's City of Books (Portland), Sunday, September 21 at 7:30pm
In More Curious (McSweeney's), Sean Wilsey, author of Oh the Glory of It All, travels across the U.S., from the launchpad at Cape Canaveral to the isolated artists' enclave of Marfa, Texas, to the boardrooms and ballrooms of post-9/11 New York City. Wherever he is, Wilsey captures his surroundings with the precision of a photographer and the raw grace of a skateboarder (he's an amateur practitioner of both arts). The essays in More Curious comprise nearly 15 years of Wilsey's most vital work on the glory and the misery, the beauty and absurdity of contemporary America. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_...

City of Lies: Love, Sex, Death, and the Search for Truth in Tehran
Powell's Books on Hawthorne, Monday, September 22 at 7:30pm
Drawn from conversations whispered across tables in the cafes that line Vali Asr, Tehran, Iran's pulsing central thoroughfare, journalist Ramita Navai gives voice to the unforgettable lives of ordinary people forced to live extraordinary lives in modern Tehran: the porn star, the aging socialite, the assassin and enemy of the state who ends up working for the Republic, the religious militiaman who undergoes a sex change, the dutiful housewife who files for divorce, and the old-time thug running a gambling den. Rich, absorbing, and exotic, City of Lies (PublicAffairs) is an insider's glimpse into the local personalities, unremarkable busy bodies, and hysterical intrigues buzzing about the city like you've never seen before. This event is sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Oregon. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_... (added from Powell's)… (more)

Sarah Waters in Conversation with Lidia Yuknavitch
Powell's City of Books (Portland), Monday, September 22 at 7:30pm
It is 1922, and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned; the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, life is about to be transformed as an impoverished widow, Mrs. Wray, and her spinster daughter, Frances, are obliged to take in lodgers. With the arrival of Lilian and Leonard, a young couple of the "clerk class," the routines of the house will be shaken up in unexpected ways. Little do the Wrays know just how profoundly their new tenants will alter the course of Frances's life. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize three times, Sarah Waters has earned a reputation as one of our greatest writers of historical fiction. A triumph of psychological acuity, historical recreation, and emotional force, The Paying Guests (Riverhead) is Waters's finest work yet. Waters will be joined in conversation by Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Chronology of Water. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_... (added from Powell's)… (more)

Kim Harrison & Richard Kadrey
Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, Thursday, September 25 at 6pm
After 10 years and 13 adventures, The Witch with No Name (Voyager) is the triumphant conclusion to Kim Harrison's Hollows series. Rachel Morgan has come a long way from her early days as an inexperienced bounty hunter. To save her best friend Ivy's soul and the rest of the living vampires, and to keep the demonic ever-after and our own world from utter destruction at the hands of fanatics, she must risk everything. In The Getaway God (Voyager), the sixth high-octane adventure of Richard Kadrey's bestselling Sandman Slim series, James Stark must save himself — and the entire world — from the wrath of some enraged and vengeful ancient gods. http://www.powells.com/events?utm_source=google&utm_medium=calendar&utm_...
