Say, kids in Portland, Oregon and vicinity, what are you doing tonight? You’d better have answered that you’re planning to be at Powell’s City of Books on Burnside at 7:30 pm Pacific, because that’s where noted author Chris Hardwick will be appearing to promote The Nerdist Way, his fine new book published by The Berkley Publishing Group, a division of The Penguin Group (USA). Meet the author! Bask in his glowing presence! Buy his book, get his autograph, possibly even sneak a hug! I can confirm that the book is really good and that Chris rarely bites unless provoked, so you should go and feel reasonably safe in doing so.
Everyone in Portland knows, I believe, where Powell’s big main Burnside store is; it’s hard to miss, but if you’re coming in from elsewhere, point yourself at 1005 W. Burnside (northwest corner of NW 10th and Burnside). And if you have any questions about the event, call Powell’s directly at (800) 878-7323 (because I don’t have any more information about it then what you see right here). Go, buy, kvell.
