Saturday November 18 from 2 to 6 PM a different kind of event will be featured. This will not be one of our usual author events, come anytime between the hours of 2 and 6 to meet Portland artist Margo Greeve. She will be signing for purchase copies of her whimsical book, Oregon’s Special Animals. Featured are many animals accompanied by clever poems, they are sure to delight young readers and would make grand gifts too. This is a great opportunity for children and adults to meet the artist/author.
Margo Greeve has been involved with art and children for decades. In the 1970’s she taught art at Marshall High School. After her teaching career, she concentrated on her art and was featured in Portland art galleries. Committing her energies to the Portland art scene, she opened the Margo Jacobson Gallery in Portland’s Pearl district featuring painters, glass artists, and sculptors. In 2003 she closed her gallery to move to Singapore for two years where she continued painting and teaching art classes to children. Living in Singapore was a wonderful opportunity to travel in Asia. Returning to Portland, Margo has continued to be involved in art and in encouraging children. She is giving presentations to the students at Three Rivers School on Friday November 17. Encouraging children is clearly important to her.
Sunriver resident Margaret Ward is a close friend of Margo Greeve. Margaret is a member of our book club and great fun, we enjoy Margaret tremendously and are happy she has introduced us to Margo.
We are not abandoning our usual format for author events, see the first two pages of this newsletter for November’s author events. This is a one time signing event, no reservations are necessary, come on by, say hello to Margo Greeve, and view her clever book of poems and art..
