Happy Holidays… in May? 

That’s right. This is an early bird special asking you to participate in an upcoming holiday project for the Oregon Pittock Mansion.

Every year, the Pittock Mansion decorates for the holidays; each room is assigned to a group of volunteers for the enjoyment of the 18,000 visitors. This year’s theme is Local, and we have volunteered to decorate the writing room with the theme “local writers.” Would you consider being a part of our project? There are three ways for authors to participate:

1) Books: If you are a print author, your donated book would be a welcomed addition to our decorations. If you aren't a print author, you still have the option of donating a print book by an Oregon author to be represented in the writing room.

What will happen to your book after the exhibit?

a) If you would like your book back, we will provide you with the date and time the decorations will be removed, so you can swing by the Pittock Mansion and take back your item(s).

b) Our group has been in contact with the Beaverton Public Library and has requested that our donated books be added to their library circulation system for future readers to enjoy.

2) Book Cover Ornament: Embrace your creativity and create an ornament using your book cover images. Michaels Craft Store has many easy ornament project ideas. (Please note that if your cover depicts an extremely bloody battle or a couple with exposed body parts, please crop the image appropriately for a family friendly event.)

3) Bookmark or Pen (one of each only please): This item will be turned into a tree ornament or room decoration.

To be included in this project, please mail items no later than September 1, 2013 to:
