The Dangerous Writing workshop has organized a benefit reading/concert for one of their members, Bradley Rosen, at The Blue Monk (3341 SE Belmont) tonight, featuring some of Portland's most esteemed local writers. Rosen was felled by a virulent staph infection earlier this year and is facing months of recovery with no income. A brief summary of those reading:
Monica Drake, author of the prize winning novel Clown Girl.
Essayist and author Cheryl Strayed.
Some guy named Tom Spanbauer.
