Pop-up: Katherine D. Morgan

Thu, Nov 12, 2020 from 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm PST


Portland-based writer Katherine D. Morgan shares a recently published essay, Wish You Were Here, in this reading filmed at the Portland Art Museum.

Catch this reading on Literary Arts’ Instagram Stories on November 12th, or stream it anytime at PDXBookFest.org.

The pop-up readings are a partnership between the Portland Book Festival and the Portland Art Museum where Festival writers are thematically paired with artworks in the Museum. A celebration of creatives, the pop-ups highlight the intersections of visual art and the written word. For her pop-up reading, Morgan was paired with Violet in a White Layer by Yoshida Chizuko, in the Joryū Hanga Kyōkai (Japan’s Women Printmakers) exhibit on view now at the Portland Art Museum.
