2021/22 Portland Arts & Lectures: Daniel James Brown

Thu, October 14 from 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
1037 SW Broadway Portland, OR 97205

$250-$355 (Series)

This event is part of our Portland Arts & Lectures 2021/22 season. 

All dates are booked at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, and will be held in person in accordance with public health guidelines. Each subscription also includes a full digital pass for those subscribers who may need extra time to rejoin us downtown and would prefer to watch the lectures from home.

Daniel James Brown will be appearing via telecast from Seattle. Daniel James Brown will not be traveling to Portland for his event. Instead, he will appear live via telecast from a studio in Seattle and will be joined in conversation after his lecture with Tom Ikeda, executive director of Densho (Ikeda penned the introduction to Brown’s Facing the Mountain).

We will still hold an in-person presentation of the telecast at 7:30 p.m. on October 14 at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland.
Subscribers are welcome to view the event virtually from their own homes, or to join us in-person at the Schnitzer, and watch the event projected on a large screen in the concert hall. All seating for the in-person event will remain the same as what’s printed on tickets.

NOTE: for any in-person events through the end of 2021 we will require staff, volunteers, and audience members to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or negative PCR test and wear a mask. Click here for more information about our COVID-19 policies for in-person programming. If you have questions, please email us at la@literary-arts.org

Purchase your copy of Facing the Mountain from our independent bookstore partner, Powell’s Books.
