About the Portland Book Festival
Literary Arts presents the 2023 Portland Book Festival on November 5, presented by Bank of America. Join us for an all-ages, daylong celebration of books and storytelling in all its forms, including author panels, pop-up readings, writing workshops, kids’ story time, an extensive book fair, local food trucks, and more.
“I refer to the Portland Book Festival as ‘my Christmas’ to family and friends as shorthand for how important it is to me. My favorite part is getting to hear authors speak with such passion and integrity about their work… hearing others speak or perform live reminds me that they are human like me, and that gives me inspiration and permission to feel and reflect and create and be messy or articulate — or both — in my humans, as well.”PORTLAND BOOK FESTIVAL ATTENDEE
