Some Upcoming Events to Put On Your Calendar!

Upcoming Events by Vintage Books




Gary Corbin and The Mountain Man's Bride Feb. 25th 1-4pm
Stop by Vintage Books Feb. 25th between 1 and 4 pm to meet author Gary Corbin and get a signed copy of his newest release, Mountain Man's Bride. His other books will be available for purchase as well.

In this sequel to The Mountain Man's Dog, rustic forester Lehigh Carter fights to clear first his own name, then that of his fiancée, Stacy McBride, as they are accused of murdering the deputy who once made their lives miserable.

Gary Corbin is a writer, actor, and playwright in Camas, WA, a suburb of Portland, OR.

His debut novel, Lying in Judgment, was released in March, 2016. Lying in Judgment is a courtroom thriller about a man who serves on the jury of a murder trial for the crime he committed.

An award-winning playwright, several of his plays have been produced in the Portland, OR area, some of them multiple times. In addition to his own scripts, Gary writes, ghost-writes, and edits scripts. He specializes in tight, realistic dialogue involving sharply drawn, interesting characters in complex relationships.

In addition to writing and editing for private sector, government, individuals, and not-for-profit clients, his creative and journalistic work has been published in BrainstormNW, the Portland Tribune, The Oregonian, and Global Envision, among others.


Join us Sunday, Feb. 12 as author Margaret Pinard leads a workshop on How to Find and Deliver Essential Details for Setting, Without Being Captain Obvious!

Learn how to avoid cliche, but also dodge overzealous description. Examine how a small amount of detail implies a lot about a character or situation. Hear about some tricks to gathering detail on a location while traveling, as well as some shortcuts to research when you can't be there in person.

Margaret Pinard is an author of historical fiction, and most comfortable in nineteenth-century Britain. She travels widely for pleasure and research, and reads voraciously from her wingback chair when home in Portland, OR. She has written three novels, with a fourth coming out in 2017.


Come with questions, a passion for writing, & something to take notes with. These workshops are free & open to the public.
