Powell’s Books, Portland’s pride and joy and the largest independent bookstore in the world, opened 41 years ago this year on West Burnside.
Through the end of the year Powell’s is celebrating with special author events, sweepstakes, and this Saturday, August 25, 2012 – a Block Party to kick things off!
We’re taking the celebration to the street. Music, authors, food, games, beer… It’ll be fun for all ages! Join us from 2:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Couch St. between 10th and 12th avenues — right next to the downtown store. You won’t want to miss this prime summer event.
According to the Yelp event entry, special guests include Chuck Palahniuk, Chelsea Cain, and Lidia Yuknavitch; and two stages will feature live music.
