From innovative lyricist to local literary, Colin Meloy from one of Portland’s biggest breakthrough bands, The Decemberists, shares his story-telling mastery with an exclusive live reading of “Wildwood: The Wildwood Chronicles Book I.” Inspired by Portland’s Forest Park, the new illustrated novel is written by Meloy and illustrated by Carson Ellis.
Authors Meloy, Ursula K. Leguin and Kim Stafford also will read passages from their Forest Park– inspired works, field questions from the audience and host a book signing to benefit the hero location of “Wildwood” – Portland’s own Forest Park.
A pre-show reception will allow guests to meet the authors and reception attendees will receive a free copy of “Wildwood”, one drink ticket, admission to the readings and a one-year Forest Park Conservancy membership. Dinner is available for purchase before the show.
Proceeds from the event benefit Forest Park Conservancy, the lead nonprofit agency that helps preserve and protect the park’s wildlife habitat, as well as maintains its extensive 80-mile trail system.
