Woo-hoo! The Oregonian, Portland’s longtime newspaper of note, did a terrific feature on The Shifting Winds. The article went up online last week, and is in today’s print version. You can find the online feature here.
And here’s a photo of the print version, below. A nice spread.
My daughter Carisa called this morning to tell me my friend Diane Dunas had posted the above picture of the article on Facebook, and Diane kindly sent me a copy of her photo to share here.
The story of The Shifting Winds is set in and around the area where Portland eventually grew up, and I’ll be holding an event next week at Annie Bloom’s Books in Portland. So it’s a great match. And excellent timing. The Oregonian not only covers the Portland area but reaches readers throughout the state. Very exciting!!
UPDATE: Amy Wang, who wrote the article, clarified that it’s a feature, not a review, so I’m editing accordingly. Either way, it’s super.
Thank you, Dianne. A happy surprise!
Wonderful, Janet! And such a sweet bookstore — I enjoyed my event there just about a year ago. Molly Bloom the Shop Cat reigns over all.
Thank you, Leslie. Yes, Annie’s was my go-to bookstore when I lived just up the street. And Molly is great. She worked the crowd when I was there last time and seemed to approve. I hope she turns out for this one.
