Mitchell Jackson

September 13, 2013 @ 7:30 pm

1005 W Burnside St. between 10th and 11th Ave. Portland, OR 503 228 4651

Mitchell Jackson grew up black in a neglected neighborhood in America's whitest city, Portland, Oregon. In the '90s, those streets and beyond had fallen under the shadow of crack cocaine and its familiar mayhem. In his commanding autobiographical novel, The Residue Years (Bloomsbury), Jackson offers an honest portrayal of what it was like to come of age in that time and place, with a breakout voice that's nothing less than extraordinary. This event is sponsored by the City Club of Portland.
