We love supporting projects from our friends, so it was a big thrill for us to sit down to discuss the Books With Pictures Kickstarter. Cullen and Jerry spoke to Katie Proctor with BWP and Sean Wynn with Strange Solutions about the project.
Books With Pictures is a mainstay in the Portland comic scene, providing a wide selection of books promoting inclusivity and diverse representation. With weekly events, BWP is more than just a bookstore – it’s an anchor in their community.
An opportunity presented itself for Katie to relocate BWP to a larger historic building just down the street from their current location. That part is done, but the real work comes with finishing the store relocation. The Kickstarter will cover the remodel costs, new store fixtures and other relocation expenses. In return, there is some INCREDIBLE reward packages, from enamel pins to original art to a custom-made Captain Marvel sweater. Tune in to find out all of the details and how YOU can help support this project, which runs until May 7.
But before you can tune in to the interview, we have our Pick 3 selections for books coming out next week. John and Jerry try to guess Cullen’s pick for next Wednesday. Much like the classic TV show Name That Tune, we see how few guesses we can use to name that book.
