Literary Arts is pleased to announce two readings celebrating the release of Burnside Review‘s all-Oregon issue. The all-Oregon issue was produced by Burnside Review with support from an Oregon Literary Fellowship for publishers.

Sid Miller, editor and co-founder of Burnside Review says, “After reaching our fifth year, Burnside Review thought it was time to give something back to their state. The issue, from cover to cover, is truly an Oregon creation.”

The first reading takes place Thursday, August 20 at 7:00 p.m. at the Weiden & Kennedy atrium (224 NW 13TH) and features:

Davis Axelrod
Laton Carter
Michele Glazer
Cecelia Hagen
Paulann Petersen
Vern Rutsala
Floyd Skloot
Mary Szybist
Ann Marie Trimble

with music by Willy Vlautin

There will be a $5 suggested donation at the door. All proceeds from the reading will benefit Oregon Literary Fellowships.

A second reading is scheduled for Sunday, August 30 at 5:00 p.m. at Ron Tom’s (600 East Burnside) and will feature more contributors from the issue, including: Henry Carlile, Susan Denning, Monica Drake, Erin Ergenbright, Henry Hughes, Stephanie Lenox, Carlos Reyes, Andrew Michael Roberts, Kevin Sampsell, Maxine Scates, Zanni Schauffler, BT Shaw, Patricia Staton and Chrys Tobey.
