Wordstock Puts Out Call For Volunteers

Wordstock volunteers are a happy bunch.

Wordstock, Portland’s big book fair, is looking for volunteers to help escort authors, manage crowds, sell merchandise, and more in October.

Besides undying gratitude from bibliophiles who know it takes a lot of people to make this show happen, volunteers also receive a Wordstock t-shirt, a Columbia Sportswear Employee Store pass, and free admission to the book fair.

Wordstock 2013 will be held Oct.5 and 6 in Portland, OR. The book fair’s complete schedule will be announced on Sept. 6 at their website. Visit it to learn more about the event and the ways to become involved.
