Powell’s Books on Hawthorne
3723 SE Hawthorne, Portland, OR 97214
Richard Chiem reads from his second book, King of Joy, about woman named Corvus (which not only sounds pretentious, but is, in fact, latin for “crow”) who buries her deep mournful sorrow by moving to the woods, and engaging in artful pornography. Chiem will be joined in conversation by Janice Lee, author of The Sky Isn’t Blue.
