Portland, native habitat of the new millennial hipster, and all-purpose punchline for basic-cable snarkfests, deserves a break. Join founding editor Thomas Frank, editor in chief John Summers, and political historian Rick Perlstein to unleash a fresh round of political invective in the city that spawned the incorrigible red journalist John Reed. As an added bonus, the event will be convened at Portland’s marvelous Powell’s Books—a veritable city of books, come to think of it. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll browse, you’ll buy!
