Some of the Street Books crew distributed books at 2 lunches yesterday. The first took place under the Hawthorne Bridge, and was sponsored by HOMEpdx. The second stop was at Potluck in the Park at 9th & Washington (where they set up in the underground parking garage because of the rain). Tony requested Ann Rice, and we found him a copy of Queen of the Damned. Abe stopped in and said "Any chance you have a Japanese language book?" and was shocked when street librarian Diana Rempe handed him a Concise Japanese Dictionary, complete with phrases and everything. As Street Books draws down the 5x-week bicycle shifts, we'll be offering winter book giveaways, and getting ready for our summer 2017 shifts. Keep a look out for word on our annual Sisters of the Road Validation Day celebration in February.
