Portland Book Festival’s Independent Bookstore Partners

Every November, the Portland Book Festival presented by Bank of America brings thousands of readers together to hear from more than 100 writers publishing across all genres in an intergenerational celebration of books and stories. This year’s Festival will take place virtually from November 5-21, 2020.

Once again, we’ve partnered with four fantastic, Portland-based independent bookstores to make purchasing featured titles a breeze. Learn more about Annie Bloom’s Books, Broadway Books, Green Bean Books, and Powell’s Books below.

And remember: All books purchased through the Festival support the authors and publishers who share their work at the event and the booksellers who have worked hard to keep their businesses open during these difficult times. Please know that by purchasing books you are supporting the sustainability of the Festival.


Annie Bloom’s Books is a neighborhood independent bookstore, in Multnomah Village within Portland, that first opened its doors in 1978. They carry a broad range of new books across many genres. Along with a strong fiction section, they excel in children’s/young adult, travel, current events, and cooking.
