Author's headline benefit for affordable housing

HomeWord Bound is set for April 5 at Tualatin Country Club


Best selling authors Whitney Otto, Daniel H. Wilson and Kim Stafford top the list of Northwest writers who will be on hand at Community Partners for Affordable Housing’s 15th annual fundraiser “HomeWord Bound: An Event of Literary Proportions.”

The benefit will be held on Friday, April 5, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Tualatin Country Club, 9145 S.W. Tualatin Road.

“This year CPAH is celebrating two big milestones — it’s been 20 years since we incorporated as a housing nonprofit in Tigard, and 15 years since we began hosting an annual event with local authors,” said Sheila Greenlaw-Fink, CPAH’s executive director.

At HomeWord Bound 2013, New York Times best selling author Daniel H. Wilson will discuss his new novel, “Amped.” Poet and essayist Kim Stafford will discuss his poignant yet uplifting book about his brother’s suicide in 1988, “100 Tricks Every Boy Can Do.” And New York Times best selling author Whitney Otto will discuss her latest novel, “Eight Girls Taking Pictures,” described as a deeply affecting meditation on the lives of women artists.

The HomeWord Bound fundraiser will feature dinner, a silent auction, and a dozen local authors, book signings and sales. Other authors will include: TJ Brown, Rob DeBorde, Brian Doyle, Scott Farris, April Henry, Karen Karbo, Carter Sickels, Laura Stanfill and Yuvi Zalkow. Special guest Dan Murphy, founding general manager of The Broadway Rose Theatre Company, will serve as master of ceremonies.

CPAH provides safe and sustainable affordable housing along with support and skill-building services for seniors, individuals and families in the Tigard-Tualatin area, Southwest Portland and Beaverton.

HomeWord Bound tickets are $75, a table of 10 for $600; reservations required. Auction items are gratefully accepted.
