Sarah Grace McCandless @ Portland's Mortified

I've neglected posting about this, because it's been a hectic couple of days. But my pal, the author Sarah Grace McCandless, whose limp-wristed iPod has earned her the nickname McCandyass for the preponderance of Coldplay-like bands, was in town last week, first being a diva at Wordstock and then performing at the grand opening of Portland's Mortified chapter.

Mortified is a national mushroom patch of authors getting together and reading material they wrote in their younger years. Most of Portland's readers dug out old journals and exposed their deep crushes on boys with "mallard tail curls" in their hair, and they were all absolutely hysterical. Sarah read her submissions she had prepared in her teen years as her bid to write for Sassy magazine. Cute Writer Alert!
