We're sad to say that we're closing the book on Silent Reading Party Portland. We've loved running this event for the last two years, and we're so glad and grateful to have met all you wonderful readers. Thank you for coming out month after month to read silently in good company, (with a cocktail.)
But the time has come for us (Amanda and Karen) to move on. So we're passing the torch to Silent Book Club, a fabulous outfit that helps local volunteers run community reading events all over the country. If you're interested in helping SBC continue the tradition, check out their tips on how to launch a chapter in your city, and get in touch to find out more.
We hope that quiet communal reading will continue to have a long and happy life in Portland. In the meantime, keep reading. And remember to resist fear and assist love, every day.*
