Unchaste Readers creates and recreates itself bimonthly on the 3rd Tuesday in the basement of The Blue Monk on Belmont in Portland, Oregon.

Women read their minds for a set time. They speak of finding and losing all of the things that women find and lose. They hold our hands as they tell hard stories that they’ve survived or ar still surviving. They make us laugh at them and at ourselves in the kindest, most creative ways. They read us poetry and prose and share their music. They speak to us using words and hands. They let us write on their skirts and they carry our burdens away. They give us Dragon Wheels and take us on journeys with maps to places that only they know about. This is the website:
