Out of the Book Films
"Can video save the literary star? Ask the tastemakers at Powell's Books, the venerable independent bookstore in Portland, Oregon."
Julie Bosman, the New York Times

Very Short List calls the film "informative and fun" — a cross between the Tim Robbins movie Cradle Will Rock, the Springsteen song "My Hometown," and the website 50 Bands, 50 States.
