Pop-up: Scott Nadelson

Sat, Nov 10, 2018 from 3:00 pm - 3:15 pm PST
1219 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

Scott Nadelson pops-up with his new short story collection, The Fourth Corner of the World.

Nadelson is paired with Sky Totem by Louise Nevelson; found in the Modern American Realism exhibit on the 2nd floor of the Portland Art Museum. Please reference the Portland Art Museum Map to find this location.


The characters in Scott Nadelson’s latest collection abandon their lands of origin, sever their roots, and distance themselves from the people they once were. These stories roam geographically and historically, featuring a would-be assassin in 1920s Paris, Jewish utopians in 1880s Oregon, and teenage girls seeking revenge in 1980s New Jersey among their casts of beautifully rendered outcasts and seekers.
