Wordstock, Portland's major literary festival, is relaunching this year at the beautiful Portland Art Museum on Saturday, November 7, and I'm happy to say I'll be one of the featured authors. In fact, I'll be making a few different appearances throughout the festival.
Here's more info about the event and where you'll be able to find me.

Wordstock: Portland's Book Festival
Portland Art Museum
1219 SW Park Avenue, Portland, OR
(Tickets, $15; free for anyone 17 and younger and anyone with a valid high school student ID.)
My Wordstock Events:
Pop-up reading of The Uninvited
Northwest Art (Main Building, 3rd Floor)
A short reading of my newest book. I'll be appearing in front of artwork painted during the novel's setting.
Toil and Trouble: Monsters, Witches, and Ghosts, Oh My!
Oregon Community Foundation Stage at the Miller Gallery
A discussion with a little something scary for everyone: haunted houses, murderous neighbors, and all-too-possible realism (no vampires here). Authors Virginia Boecker (The Witch Hunter), Paige McKenzie (The Haunting of Sunshine Girl), and three authors from the new anthology Slasher Girls and Monster Boys—Kendare Blake, McCormick Templeman, and April Genevieve Tucholke—talk about things that go bump in the night… and day. Moderated by Cat Winters (Slasher Girls and Monster Boys)
An Hour of Oregon Art Beat
OPB Stage at the Fields Ballroom
An hour with OPB’s Oregon Art Beat, featuring a coming-of-age tale set on Mount Hood, Martin Marten, with author Brian Doyle; best-selling author of the Wildwood series and Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy talks about the difference between writing for songs and writing for books; Lauren Redniss will discuss her fascinating new work of visual literature, Thunder & Lightning; and award-winning author Cat Winters on her haunting new novel, The Uninvited. Hosted by Katrina Sarson.
Kridel Grand Ballroom, Portland Art Museum, Mark Building, Third Floor
If you live in the area or will be traveling to Portland for the event, I hope to see you there.
