two events coming up worth noting:
October 30: http://www.zengerfarm.org/ I'll be participating in a reading on October 30 at Portland's lovely Zenger Farm as part of "Writing our Bellies Full." Bring something harvesty for the potluck or come early to walk around the estate and visit the chickens! 7-9 p.m.
November 7, 9, 13, 15: http://portlandopera.org/operas/2008-2009/fidelio I'm SO excited! I haven't been on stage in years and now I get to be in a performance with the distinguished & professional Portland Opera! I love the story, too: Fidelio is about a woman who disguises herself to rescue her husband, a political prisoner in a corrupt prison. Fortunately, good triumphs over evil and there is much rejoicing. If you've always wanted to attend the opera, come to this one to celebrate the courage and strength of women -- and anyone who stands against oppression.
