Literary Event at Angry Pigeon May 21

Join us on Tuesday, May 21 at 7 p.m. for an event featuring Paul Martone, Brian Christopher, Jada Pierce, Jay Nebel and a performance by Reeves (a band featuring Riley Hoke ’13 and Alex Hill ’15). In December, Paul Martone received a grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council for his novel-in-progress, The Last to Leave, from which Paul will read two short passages. We hope to see you at the Angry Pigeon, 712 SW 11th Ave., between SW Morrison and SW Yamhill.
