This evening of music, food, and drink will celebrate the relaunch and support the future of Wordstock: Portland’s Book Festival.
The Bookmark Ball is a new event to welcome authors and exhibitors to Wordstock, and to celebrate our community partners, funders and donors. It will be an opportunity to meet participating, writers, publishers, members of the media, and other industry professionals. The Bookmark Ball will raise funds to ensure that Wordstock is sustainable in the future.
Only 150 tickets are available, and each ticket includes a pass to the festival on Saturday, a hardcover copy of John Irving’s new novel Avenue of Mysteries, and plenty of Wordstock goodies.
