Storytime Reading: Megan Woodward: This Book Is Definitely Not Cursed

Event date: 
Thursday, June 27, 2024 - 10:30am to 11:30am

Annie Bloom's Books welcomes Portland author Megan Woodward for an in-store storytime reading and arts & crafts event. Her debut picture book is This Book Is Definitely Not Cursed.

About This Book Is Definitely Not Cursed:

If this book were cursed, then you would probably become cursed if you read it. You’d start to experience strange symptoms, like the wiggles, the giggles, trouble licking your elbow, and all your food tasting like cabbage. And then you would need to take silly steps to break the curse, like reading a goofy poem or smelling someone’s feet. Luckily for you, there’s no need to worry because this book is definitely not cursed! So read away without fear.

As a child, Megan Woodward lived and traveled all over the world, but always felt at home with her head in a book. She's a comedy screenwriter and a freelance writer and editor, but her true love is writing for kids. This Book Is Definitely Not Cursed is her debut picture book. She lives with her son and two cats in Portland, Oregon, where it rains all the time, but never on her parade.

Poetry Reading: Laura Esther Sciortino and Christopher Luna

Event date: 
Monday, July 1, 2024 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Annie Bloom's Books welcomes Portland poet Laura Esther Sciortino for a reading from her new collection, Remote Control, published by local press The Poetry Box. Laura will be joined by fellow local poet Christopher Luna.

Signed and personalized copies of Remote Control are available for order! Please, please, please include the name for personalization in the order notes; or indicate "signed only."

About Remote Control:

Unabashed Earnestness in the Greenest of Hope. The poems in this collection are a practice in ordinary love, both longing for and celebrating connection. Here, we may partake in reading as if a friend speaks to us directly. This friend that-despite mistakes and overreaching-invests herself with unabashed earnestness in the greenest of hope, imagination, freedom, beginner's mind, surrender, and renewal.

"With sass and swagger, with spunky outspokenness, with humble wonder, Laura Sciortino offers us her debut book of poems. In this collection where paying attention is a kind of love, Sciortino's work finds its own easy place / a moggy right place / clear as water / old as sunlight." ––Paulann Petersen, Oregon Poet Laureate Emerita

Laura Esther Sciortino writes poetry, fiction, and lyric essay. Her work has appeared in The Comstock Review, Muse/A Journal, great weather for MEDIA's Escape Wheel Anthology, Dadakuku, The Flying Dodo, and Unleash Lit. Along with her husband, son, and their three affable cats, Laura lives in Portland, Oregon.

About Voracity:

In this revealing poetry collection, Luna invites readers on a candid and intimate journey behind the mask of a public figure as he grapples with identity, body image, and the enormity of his hungers.

Christopher Luna is a poet, editor, teacher, writing coach, and artist who served as the inaugural Poet Laureate of Clark County, WA from 2013-2017. Luna has an MFA from the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. He is the co-founder, with Toni Lumbrazo Luna, of Printed Matter Vancouver, an editing service and small press for Northwest writers. He and Morgan Paige co-host the LGBTQ+ friendly, all ages and uncensored Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic in Vancouver, WA, founded by Christopher in 2004. Christopher Luna’s books include Exchanging Wisdom: A Guide for Parents of the Autonomous (The Poetry Box, 2021 with Angelo Luna), Message from the Vessel in a Dream (Flowstone Press, 2018), Brutal Glints of Moonlight, and The Flame Is Ours: The Letters of Stan Brakhage and Michael McClure 1961-1978 (Big Bridge).
