Wordstock, Portland, Oregon’s Annual Festival of the Book begins today and runs through the weekend at the Oregon Convention Center. It promises to be an exciting event, with over 200 authors reading on 10 stages. There's also music, food, a kid’s festival, and other activities—really, something for everyone.
Wordstock boasts a wealth of literary talent—among those on stage this weekend is Semiotext(e)’s own Chris Kraus. She’ll be reading from her new novel, Torpor, at 11:00 am on Sunday on Multnomah Stage, B115. So, while there's not always a happy ending, this promises to be an interesting event.
