Powell's Books hosts party to benefit Beaverton schools

Cedar Hills store also offers Sci-Fi Authorfest on Sunday


The public is invited to join the Beaverton Education Foundation for a Sunday afternoon party at Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing from 3 to 6 p.m.

The open house features children's activities, games for adults, food and drinks, fun surprises and more.

Guests will also get to check out the newly revamped bookstore. Powell's has redesigned its space, including a remodeled children's section, a larger area to sell used books and upgraded and expanded displays.

Powell's is also hosting the sixth annual Sci-Fi Authorfest from 4:30 to 6 p.m., when a starfleet of science-fiction and fantasy authors will descend on the store for a galactic booksigning event. Also making an appearance: the Cloud City Garrison of the 501st Imperial Legion and the Kashyyyk Base of the Rebel Legion.

A percentage of total proceeds will benefit the Beaverton Education Foundation and its efforts to support student programs in Beaverton's public schools.
