She also gave us an excellent introduction and provided wine for the guests.
The bookstore offers a comfortable and engaging setting that welcomes authors and readers alike. Dale Danley and I were especially pleased to have three members of the Gay Lesbian Archives of the Northwest (GLAPN) join us. All three have conducted their own research of LGBTQ life in Portland: George Niccola, Dave Kohl, and George Painter. We also got to visit with the sister of our good friends and neighbors in San Francisco as well as friends of friends.
Afterwards we walked down the block to the local McMenamin's for pizza and drinks (blackberry cider for me). Seven events in four days, a whirlwind of talks, books, long-time and new friends. So good to feel welcome in my hometown.
