Upcoming festival to appeal to readers of all ages

October 15, 2017 by  

Wordstock, Portland’s Book Festival, is taking place next month.

A presentation of Literary Arts, the festival will feature over 100 authors and will host 43 different events during the day. There will be pop-up readings, writing workshops and children’s story times and singalongs with authors such as Emily Arrow. Other confirmed authors who will be appearing this year include Lemony Snicket (Daniel Handler), Traci Chee, Amy Stewart, David Grann, and Ta-Nehisi Coates.

There will also be more than 70 vendors on hand to sell books and literary items. In addition, food trucks will be there to sell food and drinks.

This event is sure to attract readers of all ages who will wish to hear and possibly meet their favorite authors. To advertise in Portland, organizers will probably invest in printed materials such as flyers, brochures, and booklets that can be inexpensively and easily distributed.

Wordstock will be held at the Portland Art Museum on November 11 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Tickets for adults are $15 in advance or $18 at the door and include a $5 book voucher to be spent at the festival. Children aged 17 and under are admitted free of charge.
