We're excited to say that the books are en route and should be in Portland tomorrow so we can commence with getting them out to all of you this week!
There are some other things happening in the coming weeks as well that we want to share.
Tomorrow morning, we'll be featured on KPTV, the Portland Fox affiliate. We'll be discussing the book along with an event we're participating in later in the week.
This coming Friday, November 16th - you'll find us at Portland's first Japanese Pub Food event - Celebrate Izakaya! The event takes place at the Jupiter Hotel and in addition to the exclusive book launch of The Tall Trees of Tokyo, the evening will spotlight the best of Japanese cuisine, shochu, saké and beer - along with a live art installation and Japanese pop culture. It's going to be a great evening and if you're in Portland, we hope to see you there.
Then, on December 6th, there will be a book launch at Portland's Hellion Gallery in conjunction with First Thursday. Stop by and say hello. The gallery is always abuzz on the first Thursday of the month and in addition to the book launch, there's a great show. Matt Wagner's interest in international art migrates to the southern hemisphere and there will be works by 15 emerging Brazilian artists in the gallery for the month of December.
We owe all of this to you, our backers! Help us celebrate.
