July 9: Rebecca Makkai, 7:30pm, Powell’s Books on Hawthorne. Critically acclaimed Makkai’s most recent book is a collection of short stories “marked with her signature mix of intelligence, wit, and heart.”
July 15: Kid’s Storytime, 3:00pm, Powell’s City of Books on Burnside. A regular Saturday event, during the summer Powell’s offers a mid-week Kid’s Storytime at the Burnside location. This week they’re reading Never Tickle a Tiger by Pamela Butchart.
July 27: President Jimmy Carter Book Signing, 4:00pm, Powell’s City of Books on Burnside. From the Powell’s calendar: “At 90, Jimmy Carter — 39th president, Nobel Peace Prize winner, international humanitarian, and fisherman — reflects on his public and private life with a frankness that is disarming.” It is important to note that this is a book signing event only and that a copy of Carter’s book A Full Life is required to attend.
