Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond At Aladdin Theater

Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond are coming to the Aladdin Theater in Portland, Oregon, on January 15th, 2017, for a live recording of Dear Sugar Radio: The Writers Resist, Portland Edition. WRITERS RESIST is a multi-city event organized by writers and activists across the nation seeking to "re-inaugurate" a shared commitment to the spirit of compassion, equality, free speech and the fundamental ideals of democracy.

Cheryl and Steve will be joined by some of their favorite Portland-based writers, including Samiya Bashir, Wendy Chin-Tanner, Rene Denfeld, Zahir Janmohamed, Cooper Lee Bombardier, Cari Luna, Sam Roxas-Chua, Lidia Yuknavitch, and Colin Meloy of The Decemberists. They'll also be taking your questions about how to move forward as a nation during this time of tremendous division and uncertainty.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to six Oregon nonprofits that protect human rights, freedom of speech, the environment, and artistic expression. For more information and tickets:
