I saw the email and tucked it away for later, as this week has been busy for me. I’m now regretting having put off reading it.
Powell’s usually hits the mark for April Fool’s jokes. This year is no exception. I hope this page stays up a while. Check out Cantaloupe by Powell’s Books.

Another in an occasional series of Little Free Libraries in Southeast Portland.
I went a different route home from work recently, and was treated to this. I’ve been meaning to visit this Little Free Library for a while, but hadn’t made the opportunity before. LFL #1432 is based at Busy Bee Preschool, at 7618 SE Duke Street.
There wasn’t much of anything in the library today. I wonder what kind of traffic it usually has. I was in some sort of publicly-available wifi dead zone – I tried a couple of times to open the Little Locator app to mark it, but never was able to get in. Maybe I can plan a day to go this route again, and take some books for it.
This week, Division92 Little Free Library is featuring books to help you make your own medicine. Please use common sense, please don’t overdo it (no “if some is helpful, more is better”!), please consider checking with your healthcare professional for any allergies or conflicts with other medicines or supplements you are currently taking, or with any illnesses or conditions you already have.
This week the Division92 Little Free Library is featuring the songbooks of Sandra Boynton. You probably know her best from her massively popular card:
Did you know she also writes (and co-writes) children’s songs? And convinces hugely popular celebrities to sing them? We’re putting out her first three songbooks. Unfortunately, the CDs are missing from each of the books. HOWEVER! You can find the songs on YouTube! For instance:
Where else can you hear Kate Winslet & Weird Al Yankovic singing a duet? When was the last time you heard Scott Bakula sing? What other album contains performances by both Hootie & the Blowfish AND Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme?
Join Multnomah County Library, PRISM (Multnomah County’s LGBTQ Employee Resource Group), and the Hollywood Theatre in celebrating Transgender Day of Visibility with a screening of the documentary Kiki followed by a panel featuring Portland Ballroom PDXB performers and organizers.
Directed by Sara Jordenö and co-written by Twiggy Pucci Garçon, a leader in New York’s kiki community, 2016’s KIKI is a dynamic coming of age story about resilience and the transformative art form of vogueing. KIKI follows seven New York City LGBTQ youth of color who face real struggles creating a safe and vibrant space for themselves to vogue.
Free tickets available on Hollywood Theatre’s website.
