A woman who started a self-empowered soup kitchen for the homeless. A man who never stopped advocating for the African American community. A group who fights to protect Oregon forests from logging corporations. These stories have one thing in common: they celebrate people who are making Oregon a better place for everyone. Comics for Change! (Know Your City) collects 10 mini-comics in a box set by some of Portland’s best comic writers and illustrators. Join authors Anne Marie DiStefano, Christen McCurdy, and Douglas Wolk; artists Khris Soden and Natalie Sept; and some of the featured activists for a discussion and slideshow of these compelling stories of social justice.

OR – March Signing

jl_march

Congressman John Lewis appears on Saturday, January 18th at noon at Powell’s City of Books.

Congressman John Lewis is an American icon and one of the key figures of the civil rights movement. His commitment to justice and nonviolence has taken him from an Alabama sharecropper’s farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington, and from receiving beatings from state troopers to receiving the Medal of Freedom from the first African American president. Now, to share his remarkable story with new generations, Lewis presents March (Top Shelf), a graphic novel trilogy (in collaboration with cowriter Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell). March is a vivid firsthand account of Lewis’s lifelong struggle for civil and human rights, meditating in the modern age on the distance traveled since the days of Jim Crow and segregation. Book One spans John Lewis’s youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall.

Neil Gaiman presents The Ocean at the End of the Lane at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House on Tuesday, June 18, 7:00 PM

RSVP on Facebook!

Part of Unbound at BAM: A Literary Series with Greenlight Bookstore

From one of the world’s most beloved storytellers––#1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Stardust, Coraline) –– comes his first adult novel in eight years. Wondrous and imaginative, and at times deeply scary, The Ocean at the End of the Lane captures the very essence of childhood fear and uncertainty. In a clash of memory and reality, it is a pitched fever dream of a novel, and could very well be Gaiman’s most accomplished work to date.

LOCATION: Peter Jay Sharp Building
BAM Howard Gilman Opera House
30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217

RUN TIME: 1 hour (followed by book signing)

TICKETS: $45 and $55, available through the BAM box office or online through BAM.org.
Each event ticket includes a copy of The Ocean at the End of the Lane; books will be distributed in the Opera House lobby preceding the event.

SIGNING: Neil Gaiman will sign books for all ticket holders following the event. He will sign and personalize any number of copies of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and no more than two other titles. Gaiman’s books will be offered for sale by Greenlight at BAM in the Opera House lobby before and after the reading.
