New Seasons Market: Meet the Author Event

November 2nd, 2010

Look at dem apples. The produce department a day before the grand opening at the newest Hawthorne New Seasons Market.

There are two places in Portland that I’ve always dreamed of working. Powell’s Books is one of them and New Seasons Market is the other. I’ve applied many times for jobs at various New Seasons Markets (and at Powell’s) and never been hired. That’s ok — no grudge. It’s been years since I’ve applied, and well, I’m pretty happy with my working life at the moment. I’m telling you all this now because…

Although my book events have slowed down as the leaves have changed colors and after I passed the three month marathon promotion line (I told myself I’d give three months to non-stop events and promotion for the book and then I’d take a breather) I still have book events lined up. This Thursday I’ll be doing an informal meet the author at the Concordia New Seasons Market from 4:30 to 6pm and I hope you’ll stop by if you’re in the area.

It’s been fun planning this one because in addition to selling and signing books the lovely crew at New Seasons has put together a sampling menu of local food and drink featured in the book that New Seasons carries. Included in the sampling menu are tasty treats from:

Hot Lips Soda
Grand Central Bakery
Columbia Gorge Organic
St. Johns Coffee Roasters

So if I can’t tempt you with myself or my book I’m hoping that getting bites and sips of all of the above will seal the deal.
