Thu., Aug. 29, 6:30 p.m. 2013
From the venue:Hammonds House Museum and Written Magazine are hosting Wine & Words, Thursday, August 29, from 6:30-8:30 pm. Written by Mitchell S. Jackson, The Residue Years describes him growing up black in a neglected neighborhood in America's whitest city, Portland, Oregon. In the '90s, those streets and beyond had fallen under the shadow of crack cocaine and its familiar mayhem. In his commanding autobiographical novel, Mitchell writes what it was like to come of age in that time and place, with a break-out voice thatâ€™s nothing less than extraordinary.
