A few bloggers are going to do a Portland weekend. It’s mostly bloggers already in the area, but a few of us are traveling so we can see Portland (okay, for me, it’s mostly so I can see Powell’s) and meet up with other bloggers.
Date? August 21st and 22nd.
On August 21st we’ll be having dinner somewhere together. I have to admit, I’m a little nervous because it looks like we’ll be going someplace that doesn’t have hamburgers (which is a great standby food), but I’ve decided I’m going to be ADVENTUROUS and not even voice any of my food issues. I’m going to rely on those who really like that kind of food to steer us in the right direction, and then to recommend things to me that a newbie would like.
With all of my food issues, you’d never know I’ve worked in restaurants for TEN YEARS and have actually tried quite a few things, but it’s mostly been “American” food.
On Saturday we’re going to tour the Portland library’s rare book room, which I’m SO EXCITED about. Some of the books I’ll get to see include first editions of Little Women and The Wizard of Oz and Beatrix Potter books. How much will I geek out? A LOT.
We’re also going to meet up with a couple of local Portland authors. So far, we’ve confirmed we’ll be meeting with Molly Gloss, which I’m really excited about!
Some of the people who will be coming include:
- Me! (dur)
- Wendy from Caribousmom
- Bethany from Dreadlock Girl Reads
- Gabe from Reading Local: Portland
- Gilion from Rose City Reader
- Ali from Worducopia
- SuziQOregon from Whimpulsive
- Teddy Rose from So Many Precious Books, So Little Time
You’re more than welcome to join us, but if you can’t, we’ll try to have fun without you. 😉
