This Friday at 7:30 at Work/Sound Gallery (820 SE Alder) in Portland, Octopus Books and Poor Claudia are having a double, nay, triple book release party. Bring two, nay, three loved ones. Octopus is celebrating the release of its two newest full-length poetry books, The Difficult Farm by Heather Christle and Boris by the Sea by Matvei Yankelevich, with readings by the authors. Both Heather and Matvei are traveling into Portland for the event (from Atlanta and Brooklyn respectively). Poor Claudia will be releasing their second issue and will celebrate by having their authors read: Emily Kendal Frey, Matthew Dickman, Lisa Ciccarello, Crystal Willer, and Hannah Pass.
No charge. Save that cash for the booze and the books, but more importantly, the books.
