Oregon Book Awards

PENELOPE BASS

Gerding Theater

Like the Academy Awards for the lit crowd (think fewer tuxes, more tweed jackets), the annual Oregon Book Awards will honor local writers across a multitude of genres. Nominated writers include Portland favorites like fiction author Brian Doyle (Bin Laden’s Bald Spot), poet Carrie Seitzinger (Fall Ill Medicine) and nonfiction writer Cheryl Strayed (Wild). Presented by Literary Arts, the ceremony will be hosted by Tin House co-founder Elissa Schappell.
