Sunday, November 15, 2015 from 7:30-8:30pm
Rainn Wilson will hold a discussion and signing of his memoir The Bassoon King: My Life in Art, Faith, and Idiocy at Powell’s City of Books. This is a free, non-ticketed event. Rainn is best known for his Emmy-nominated role as Dwight Schrute on NBC’s The Office, and his memoir THE BASSOON KING is equally hilarious. The memoir describes his journey from nerd to drama geek, his struggles as a young actor in drug-fueled 1980’s NYC—to pay the bills, he once was a Man with a Van—and fun behind-the-scenes details of what it was like star in The Office.
Monday, April 14, 2014 from 7-9pm
Join us April 14th at Powells for a free, public reading of Comics For Change! Illustrated Stories From Oregon’s Front Lines. Writers and artists from the series will present a brief slideshow about the project, with special guests TBA. A woman who started a self-empowered soup kitchen for the homeless. A man who never stopped advocating for the African American community. A group who fights to protect Oregon forests from logging corporations. These stories have one thing in common: they celebrate people who are making Oregon a better place for everyone.
