Blumesday

PENELOPE BASS
7 pm., Monday June 17 | $8-$10.
Secret Society Ballroom
116 NE Russell St.
 
James Joyce isn’t the only author who gets an annual celebration. Blumesday honors the brilliant career of Judy Blume whose (often censored) books stand as landmark moments for women and adolescents. A host of local writers and performers, including Emily Chenoweth, Sarah Grace McCandless, Courtenay Hameister, musicians Laura Gibson and China Forbes, Back Fence PDX founder B. Frayn Masters and Bitch Magazine editor Andi Zeisler, will take the stage to share their most awkward and titillating Blume moments. Stick around for the audience participation game of “Name That Blume.”

Where: Secret Society Ballroom
Address: 116 NE Russell St.
