I was stoked to hear about this unique program and encourage you Portland folks to take a look at their collection. I am honored to say that they will be carrying a few of my titles:
Thanks to Emily-Jane from the Mulnomah County Library for making this possible! I’ll be also add links to this collection on my website in the near future.
