Oh, What a night...

Kindergarden students from Sabin School

display their work at A Children’s Place Bookstore on NE Freemont Street. The pictures sell for $50.00 each. I’m happy the children are being supported in their creative expression and kudos to A Children’s Place.

The paintings were one more sweet surprise at the posthumous launch of

Bridget Zinn’s Young Adult novel, Poison.

It was very moving to witness the Portland community of Young Adult authors come together to support Bridget’s book. The excerpted readings by Bridget’s colleagues and friends piqued my interest and I’ll be curling up with a copy tonight.

Times like these, I’m very grateful to live in a city providing so many amazing opportunities while remaining a neighborhood of kind and loving friends.
