Signing Books at Klindt’s Saturday
Here’s the bit about this awesome place from my book “Day Trips From Portland: Getaway Ideas for the Local Traveler.”
Klindt’s Booksellers. 315 East 2nd St.; (541) 296-3355; www.klindtsbooks.com. Given that you are holding this actual paper book in your hand instead of travel researching on-line, I am going to assume that you are at least a little bit of a book junkie. If that’s the case, then Klindt’s might just be your number one destination in The Dalles. Klindt’s first opened its doors in 1870 and is the oldest bookstore in Oregon. The space has all of the charm to prove it. Browse through original bookshelves, cabinets and squeaky wooden floors to discover all sorts of titles, both brand new and old and out of print. Whether you are searching for mystery or memoir, cooking or cartography, Klindt’s automatically provides the history and romance.
I’ll have Chance of Sun with me, too, of course.
Hope to see some friendly faces in the crowd! It’s also The Dalles Jammin’ July Fest. Should be a grand old time!
