Trevor Blake: "The Sound of the Hammer Greets You on Every Side: Portland Memorials"
Tuesday, Feb. 7th
23 NW 4th Ave
Portland, OR, 97209
Between 2009 and 2011 Trevor walked the length and breadth of downtown Portland. When he found a memorial, he transcribed what it said and where it was. Portland Memorials includes all the memorials in downtown Portland. Trevor entered this book into the public domain for the same reason Joseph Shemanski gave Portland the Shemanski Fountain: "to express in small measure gratitude for what the city has done for me." Trevor will discuss the book and the remarkable memorials he found while writing it.
