If holiday shopping for kids is on your agenda, what could be better than books? How about books that are both fun and informative! Check out Craigmore Creations, a small, local outfit that publishes kids’ and young adult books, often with regional natural history as their subject matter, and always with an emphasis on the natural world. They’ll be hosting an open house at their SE Portland office with books, button-making, coloring, and more!

Amy Tan (The Joy Luck Club, Saving Fish from Drowning, The Bonesetter’s Daughter), will be at Powell’s Beaverton tonight. She has a new novel, and I would bet it’s long, emotional, and really, really good.
