Night, Rain, River Readers on Nov. 8

PORTLAND–Four Oregon authors will read their stories from The Night, and the Rain, and the River at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 8, at Another Read Through, 3932 N. Mississippi Ave., Portland. The event is free and open to the public.

The Night, and the Rain, and the River, a collection of stories by Oregon authors edited by Portland’s Liz Prato, was published by Forest Avenue Press and funded in part by a 2014 Oregon Literary Fellowship. Prato will be on hand to introduce the authors.

Victoria Blake is a Portland resident, a graduate of the Warren Wilson Program for Writers, and, in a previous life, the founder and publisher of Underland Press. She is the publisher of InFact Books, the imprint from Creative Nonfiction Foundation.

Christi Krug is the author of Burn Wild: A Writer’s Guide to Creative Breakthrough and the creator of Wildfire Writing, a workshop helping writers overcome obstacles. She serves as coach and editor for writers across the country, and hosts a popular short story series at Cascade Park Community Library in Vancouver, Washington.

Gregg Kleiner’s novel, Where River Turns to Sky (HarperCollins), was a finalist for both the Oregon Book Award and the Paterson Fiction Prize. He grew up on creeks outside various small towns in Oregon, including Lookingglass, Langlois, and Silverton, and currently resides near the confluence of the Willamette and Marys rivers. His just-completed collection of short fiction explores community, elders, and climate change.

Another Read Through, North Portland’s used bookshop for adults and kids, provides a platform for local authors to gain exposure and local fans.
