Portland-based food writer Liz Crain shares selections from her latest cookbook, Dumplings Equal Love, in this reading filmed at the Portland Art Museum.

Catch this reading on Literary Arts’ Instagram Stories on November 5th, 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 authors 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, Crain was paired with Strata by Ronald Davis, in PAM’s Modern & Contemporary Art collection.
