Several Portland bookstores booked events this summer featuring some unusual contributors—high school students. The kids are staffers of Roosevelt High School’s Unique Ink Publishing, a student-led writing and publishing center that operates under the guidance of PSU’s Master’s Program in Publishing, more commonly known by its publishing imprint, Ooligan Press, and they’re currently leading a mini-tour for Unique Ink’s inagural publication, Where the Roses Smell the Best: A Literary Companion to Portland.
The students were joined by, among other contributors, Oregon Poet Laureate, Paulann Petersen, for a tour kickoff at Powell’s on Hawthorne earlier this month and they hit Broadway Books last night.
