Books have helped people for a millennium but now books need our aid. Vital and important books are under attack and being banned because they contain knowledge that can free our minds of prejudices and bigotry. Join us as we spend a day highlighting banned books, especially queer books, on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at Belmont Books PDX.
The book fair will last all day from 12-6 p.m. and the Sisters will be there from 2-5 p.m with Novice Sister Shiso Panda emceeing the event at that time to fulfill their novice project and spread joy and awareness.
Come dressed as a character from your favorite banned book and enter to win a $75 gift certificate. You’re also invited to read a 5 minute excerpt from your favorite banned book. See the facebook page for those details and to get a reading slot for yourself.
Get a free bookmark specially designed for this event with every book purchase. All book purchases will have half their proceeds donated to the PDX Sisters Grants Fund, so don’t forget your wallet and help support community!
