Pop-up: April Genevieve Tucholke

Sat, Nov 10, 2018 from 11:45 am - 12:00 pm PST
1219 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

April Genevieve Tucholke pops-up with her YA novel, The Boneless Mercies.

Tucholke is paired with Bust of Diana by Jean-Joseph-Alexandre Falguière; found in the European Art on the 2nd floor of the Portland Art Museum. Please reference the Portland Art Museum Map to find this location.


Frey, Ovie, Juniper, and Runa are the Boneless Mercies—girls hired to kill quickly, quietly, and mercifully. But Frey is weary of the death trade and, having been raised on the heroic sagas of her people, dreams of a bigger life.

When she hears of an unstoppable monster ravaging a nearby town, Frey decides this is the Mercies’ one chance out. The fame and fortune of bringing down such a beast would ensure a new future for all the Mercies. In fact, her actions may change the story arc of women everywhere.

Full of fierce girls, bloodlust, tenuous alliances, and unapologetic quests for glory, this elegantly spun tale challenges the power of storytelling—and who gets to be the storyteller.
