The Rumpus Is Going to Portland!


The Rumpus is Portland-bound for the Portland Book Festival, and we couldn’t be more excited about what we have planned!

On Friday, November 9, don’t miss Our Words Are a Bridge: An Evening with The Rumpus, VIDA, and YesYes Books. This dream lineup includes Elizabeth Acevedo, Nabila Lovelace, Terese Mailhot, Sophia Shalmiyev, Stacey Tran, and Lidia Yuknavitch. Marissa Korbel will host. Find all the details and RSVP here.


On Saturday, November 10, our EIC Marisa Siegel will be moderating a panel discussion between Patrick DeWitt (French Exit), Vanessa Hua (A River of Stars), and Lydia Kiesling (The Golden State). Join us for an in-depth discussion of motherhood, money, and running away from our problems!


Finally, we’ve got a pop-up reading at the Portland Art Gallery with a lightning round of readings from Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Ashley Toliver, and Leni Zumas! Find all the details and RSVP here.
