Pop-up: The Astro Poets

Sat, Nov 9, 2019 from 2:45 pm - 3:00 pm PST
1219 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

Dorothea Lasky and Alex Dimitrov, aka the Astro Poets, pop-up in the Portland Art Museum galleries with their new book, Astro Poets: Your Guides to the Zodiac.  

Lasky and Dimitrov are paired with the artwork Mystic Slate by Tony DeLap; found on the 2nd floor of the Modern & Contemporary Art galleries. Please reference the Portland Art Museum Map to find this location.


Full of insight, advice and humor for every sign in the zodiac, the Astro Poets’ unique brand of astrological flavor has made them Twitter sensations. Their long-awaited first book is in the grand tradition of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs, but made for the world we live in today.

In these pages the Astro Poets help you see what’s written in the stars and use it to navigate your friendships, your career, and your very complicated love life. If you’ve ever wondered why your Gemini friend won’t let you get a word in edge-wise at drinks, you’ve come to the right place. When will that Scorpio texting “u up?” at 2AM finally take the next step in your relationship? (Hint: they won’t). Both the perfect introduction to the twelve signs for the astrological novice, and a resource to return to for those who already know why their Cancer boyfriend cries during commercials but need help with their new whacky Libra boss, this is the astrology book must-have for the twenty-first century and beyond.
