(Thanks, Alex, for forwarding this!)

Hi, friends,

After a looong summer vacation, Loggernaut is back!

Please join us two weeks from today for our first reading of the season.
We have three terrific Portland authors on tap: Rodney Koeneke, Tom
Spanbauer, and Lidia Yuknavitch. Juicy authorial details below.

The reading is at 7:30pm on Wednesday, October 29th. Admission: $3. The
prompt this time is "Scary."

With Mississippi Studios under construction, we're moving the show over to
Urban Grind, a great new space at 2214 NE Oregon St., Portland. There'll
be food and drink available. Here's a map: http://tinyurl.com/47knzt

We'll send a reminder as we get closer, but we hope you mark the evening
down on your calendar, and we hope to see you there!
