Join me and "Dear Sugars" Cheryl Strayed, Steve Almond, Wendy Chin-Tanner, Colin Meloy, and others at The Aladdin Theater, from 6pm - 8pm.
On January 15, 2017, writers across the United States and in Europe will come together for Writers Resist, a “re-inauguration” of our shared commitment to the spirit of compassion, equality, free speech, and the fundamental ideals of democracy. Writers Resist events, large and small, will be held in dozens of locations throughout the US and the world.
Writers Resist is a multi-city event organized by writers and activists across the nation seeking to "re-inaugurate" a shared commitment to the spirit of compassion, equality, free speech and the fundamental ideals of democracy.
Here for The Writers Resist, Portland Edition I am excited to join The Sugars, Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond, Wendy Chin-Tanner, Rene Denfeld, Zahir Janmohamed, Cooper Lee Bombardier, Cari Luna, Sam Roxas-Chua and Lidia Yuknavitch, plus, music from Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Wonderly and Angela Freeman. They'll also be taking your questions about how to move forward as a nation during this time of tremendous division and uncertainty.
