I quite love Portland, Oregon. The bookstores, coffee, treats and landscape are always welcoming.
We make a point to visit at least one of the Powell’s bookstores when we are in town. The main store is literally a city block of books, new and used. It is the largest poetry section I’ve ever seen outside of a university library and I always leave with a new find.
Based on a list of local reading series I found at the bookstore and some research, here is a list of the ones that stood out. (Please comment below if you have any to recommend, remove or better links to provide.)
Here are some other Portland, Oregon, area events:

I look forward to attending a reading during a summer visit to the west coast this year. Which ones are your favorites?
