Portland: Booked 107

A few photos from a fabulous Booked 107 event hosted by the lovely people at Cider Riot. Booked 107 is a Timbers Army outreach project that claims to have the largest 'soccer' lending library in North America!

I was very fortunate to follow in the footsteps of Bill Buford and Gwenolyn Oxenham by participating in a book talk and Q&A session. The session last three hours and included a live Skype link-up with Sönke Goldbeck, member of FC St. Pauli's Supervisory Board. I was looked after incredibly well for the duration of my stay in Portland; was fortunate enough to take in a game with the Timbers Army; and be able to forge links between the Timbers and FCSP – united in fighting fascism, racism, sexism and homophobia. 

A full report of the trip will follow shortly.
