Saunders in Portland.

Via Longfellow Books:

Thursday, September 27th
The Telling Room presents:
An Evening with George Saunders

at SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress Street
Doors open at 7:00 pm, reading starts at 7:30 pm, $7, All ages

Who else can pack so much dark humor, biting satire, and surreal madness in a piece of writing, bringing a sorry lot of characters to life amidst the chaos of the modern world, and through their struggles make us laugh, cry, but most of all question and think?

George Saunders is a one of a kind talent. His previous works (Civilwarland in Bad Decline and In Persuasion Nation among them) set a new standard for intelligent, irreverent storytelling, and his newly released collection of nonfiction, The Braindead Megaphone, continues down his path of insightful social critique. As a writer and a teacher, he’s a source of fearless inspiration, and thanks to the Telling Room, he’s coming to Portland.
