We're in for another authorial treat. Shane Jones, writer of an amazing, condensed, fairy-tale of a novel called Light Boxes is coming to the agency today.
Recently, one of our favorite directors, Spike Jonez, purchased film rights to it. When you read Light Boxes, you can see how Spike might film it.
It’s a perfect story for Portlanders: a fable about a perpetual February and a town going to war against it with hot air balloons, boiling water and, yes, light boxes.
He will later be at Powell's tonight for a reading, but thanks to Marco Kaye we get a secret reading here today. We are so lucky.
