The Gravity of the Thing will be attending Wordstock: Portland’s Book Festival, which will take place on November 11th, 2017 at the Portland Art Museum and the neighboring venues in downtown Portland, Oregon. We are very pleased to be hosted by Portland State University’s creative writing program and the Portland Review at the book fair, and we are very glad to be collaborating with Prieto Screenprinting in the production of handcrafted leaflets.
