AZ – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

00000000-hbo-az

Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Stand Up Live Comedy Theater on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 7:00 PM for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Get tickets here…

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

OR – Late in the Day Signing

0000-Late-in-the-Day-poems-Le-Guin

Press Release:

Broadway Books is thrilled to welcome back Portland’s grand dame of the literary world, Ursula K. Le Guin, who will read from her newest collection of poetry, Late in the Day: Poems 2010-2014, published by PM Press. The reading will take place at 7 pm on Wednesday, February 24th.

Le Guin is a remarkably prolific writer, even given the fact that she is in her 80s. She has published twenty-one novels (including her 1969 breakthrough novel, The Left Hand of Darkness), eleven volumes of short stories (including the 2014 Oregon Book Award winner The Unreal and the Real, Volumes 1 and 2), four collections of essays, twelve books for children, six volumes of poetry and four of translation, and Steering the Craft: A Twenty-First-Century Guide to Sailing the Sea of Story, a guide to the essentials of the writer’s craft – of which she knows a thing or two.

Le Guin was born in Berkeley and grew up in a family of academics and writers. She moved to Portland in 1958 when her husband, the historian Charles A. Le Guin, took a position at Portland State University, and they raised their three children here.
She has won numerous awards, including the Hugo, Locus, and Nebula Awards, the PEN-Malamud, the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, the Oregon Book Award, and the Library of Congress Living Legends Award. In 2014 she was presented the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters, where she took the world by storm with her bold truth-telling about the over-commercialization of literature: “I don’t want to watch American literature get sold down the river.” The video of Le Guin’s speech became an internet sensation, making her for a time, as she likes to put it, “as popular as Maru the cat.” [Good news: that speech is reprinted at the end of her new collection of poems.]

Her new collection, , seeks meaning in an ever-connected world, attempting to give voice to objects that may not speak a human language but communicate with us nevertheless.
