The Portland Book Festival announced this year’s stacked lineup on Wednesday. A full schedule will be announced in October. Acclaimed authors such as Lauren Groff, Brandon Taylor, and Maggie Nelson are scheduled to appear. The festival will offer a virtual pass with five-day access to live streamed discussions, podcasts, and radio broadcasts on a sliding scale of $0-$100. Passes to the single-day in-person festival will be $15 in advance and $25 the day of. All adult passes include admission to the Portland Art Museum and a $5 book voucher.
