George Saunders recently spoke for the Literary Arts series at Portland's Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. Justin Hocking and I were in attendance. I was there to document what I could. however I could, on behalf of Literary Arts; Hocking because he, even after attending the craft discussion at the LitArts HQ earlier in the day, still had not had nearly enough Saunders time.
Literary Arts recorded the talk and will release a podcast in November. My notes were exhaustive, semi-legible, and barely scratched the surface. I've reconstructed what I could in the following images.
