A Minor Reading Series is kicking back into gear just as the world needs it most with two inimitable talents. Meghan Lamb is traveling through Portland on tour in support of her new highly acclaimed work, Silk Flowers. Prolific local star Douglas W. Milliken has emerged from apple season ready to make us uncomfortable. It’s going to be a beautiful night. Begins at 8. Suggested donation $5. Many thanks to the Apohadion Theater.
“Silk Flowers is incisive, intimate, ethereal yet physical, capturing the disconnect between lovers, a disconnect that appears to travel deep into each one of them and then manifest in mysterious, unbidden ways. Sharply written, structured in an almost unsettling his/hers dichotomy, this is a novel that will make the reader ponder the distances between and within.” -Dao Strom
“I believe Doug Milliken has a firm grasp of life’s little traumas. He takes his chunk of loving meat and hangs it from a butcher’s hook on display for the world to read.”
