Bushwick Book Club Portland presents Chuck Pahlaniuk's LEGACY
The Bushwick Book Club Portland is thrilled to present a show in celebration of and inspired by Chuck Palahniuks new book, LEGACY: AN OFF-COLOR NOVELLA FOR YOU TO COLOR,Illustrated by Mike Norton and Steve Morris.  In addition to new songs, coloring and snacks in response to the book, Pahlaniuk will be officiating the glowing beach ball game segment of the night and awarding prizes!

"Imagine if Joseph Campbell produced a coloring book, said Palahniuk. Legacy will be one part Art Bell, one part Carl Jung, part George Noory, and right brain from cover to cover.  All cultures have their myths about attaining immortality, but Dark Horse, Mike, Steve and I are the first to slap such high culture anthropology into the low culture world of coloring."

"Each reader will bring his or her final details to the story, said Palahniuk. When colored, each book will be a one-of piece of collaborative art worth keeping for the ages!"

5pm  - BYO crayons to collaborate with Pahlaniuk's newest work and first long form prose publication since the release of his novel Beautiful You in 2014.

6pm - NEW ORIGINAL SONGS inspired by the book will be performed by songwriters from both coasts!  Radio personality AMY FAUST ("Mike and Amy in the Morning" The Wolf 99.5) hosts!  GAMES and PRIZES will be hosted by the author himself.

Founded in Brooklyn in 2009, the Bushwick Book Club meets every month and employs the talents of local songwriters, artists and culinary creatives who plumb the depths of a chosen literary gem to create that rare and beautiful thing  a new song (or visual art, dance, film or snack).  All songs are then performed at a live show.  The Bushwick Book Club now has several branches all over the world, including Portland, LA, Seattle, Malmo, Sweden, Santa Barbara, New Orleans and Toronto, Canada.  You can also enjoy The Bushwick Book Club PODCAST on iTunes and SoundCloud.
