Oregon’s Catholic writer Brian Doyle will be remembered by his literary pals at a celebration set for Thursday, Sept. 21, 7 p.m. at First Congregational Church in downtown Portland. Doyle, who died of brain cancer in May, was a Sentinel columnist, editor of Portland magazine and author of essays and novels.

Among the presenters will be authors David James Duncan, Kathleen Dean Moore, Robin Cody, Robert Michael Pyle and Kim Stafford.

“We will gather to remember and to share stories about how we have learned from him, stories that will sustain our devotion to the craft of writing and the life of grace,” said Stafford.
