Today (July 28, 2015)

@ 7:30 pm

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

Morning rush hour on the Golden Gate Bridge. Amidst the river of metal and glass a shocking event occurs, leaving those who witnessed it desperately looking for answers, most notably one man and his son, Jake, who captured the event and uploaded it to the Internet for all the world to experience. As the media swarms over the story, Jake will face the ramifications of his actions as he learns the perils of our modern disconnect between the real world and the world we create online. With a wide cast of characters and an exciting pace that mimics the speed of our modern, all-too-connected lives, All This Life (Soft Skull Press) examines the dangerous intersection of reality and the imaginary, where coding and technology seek to highlight and augment our already-flawed human connections. Using his trademark talent for creating memorable characters, with a deep insight into language and how it can be twisted to alter reality, Joshua Mohr returns with his most contemporary and insightful novel yet. Mohr will be joined in conversation by Cari Luna, author of The Revolution of Every Day.

  1. Clay Water Brick Signed Edition New Hardcover $28.00

@ 7:30 pm

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

For as long as she could remember, Jessica Jackley, the cofounder of the revolutionary microlending site Kiva, had a singular and urgent ambition: to help alleviate global poverty. While in her 20s, she set off for Africa to finally meet the people she had long dreamed of helping. Today, she believes that many of the world's most inspiring entrepreneurs are not focused on high-tech ventures or making a lot of money; instead, they build better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities, regardless of the things they lack or the obstacles they encounter. In Clay Water Brick (Spiegel & Grau), Jackley challenges readers to embrace entrepreneurship as a powerful force for change in the world. She shares her own story of founding Kiva with little more than a laptop and a dream, and the stories and lessons she has learned from those who are doing the most with the least.
