During the sixth season of The Archive Project, enjoy recordings from Portland Arts & Lectures events, the Portland Book Festival, and other community events happening right here in Portland, Oregon. Also, a new limited series LONG DISTANCEfeatures interviews with authors and their latest book releases.
Raven Leilani’s work has been published in Granta, The Yale Review, McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, Conjunctions, The Cut, and New England Review, among other publications. Leilani received her MFA from NYU and was an Axinn Foundation Writer-in-Residence. Luster is her first novel.
Purchase Luster from Annie Bloom’s Books, one of our Portland-based, independent bookstore partners HERE.
All books purchased through festival events, from Annie Bloom’s Books, BROADWAY BOOKS, Green Bean Books, or Powell’s Books support the authors and publishers who share their work at the festival and the booksellers who have worked hard to keep their businesses open during these difficult times. Please buy early and often and know that by purchasing books you are supporting the sustainability of the festival.
