Portlanders: Events to Attend!

We like to support our friends, and so I'm spreading the news about Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett's book BOILERPLATE: HISTORY'S MECHANICAL MARVEL, which is being released to retail establishments this coming week. If you're in the Portland area, there's some events happening to promote it. I'm thinking about the Powell's reading on Friday, even though it means going into Downtown Portland in the evening (Hey, I do that, sometimes).

October 1, 6:00–9:00 pm
First Thursday reception
PCPA ArtBar, 1111 SW Broadway (at Main St.)

Through the month of November, artwork from Boilerplate is on public display in the Portland Center for the Performing Arts ArtBar. The October 1st reception will feature a book signing, hors d’oeuvres, and libations.

October 2, 7:30 pm
Boilerplate reading and signing
Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside

If you can attend only one event, please turn out for our first appearance at Powell’s on Burnside. Our reading will include letters from Boilerplate’s inventor and historical images of the robot. A life-sized Boilerplate image, suitable for photographic opportunities, will also be present.

Saturday, October 10, 1:00-5:00 pm
Wordstock signing (Stumptown pavilion)
Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE MLK Jr. Blvd., Portland, Oregon
