Extra! Extra!

Soon we’ll be tossing our galoshes to the back of the closet and wearing nothing but shorts and flip-flops, both of which pair well with some classic reading material. Thankfully, the new edition of Street Roots hits the block tomorrow morning. Here’s what’s rolling on the presses right now:

 The gravity of abuse: The first in a series examining the complex personal toll of domestic abuse.  Reporter Rosette Royale spent 22 months researching the path of violence in Brandy Sweeney and Richard Duncan’s lives. The result is an intense dissection of abuse in America.

Bugged out: New federal guidelines for low-income housing support cut out explicit tenant protections regarding bed bug infestations. The result could deter eradication in Portland apartments.

 Where wisdom sleeps: Author Linda Ross Swanson chronicles the lives of addiction and recovery on the streets.

The endless journeyman: Portland icon Lewi Longmire has found success on many stages, but his roots still run deep beneath the Rose City.

Plus commentary from the Western Regional Advocacy Project, and poetry from the students of the Native American Youth and Family Center. All for only $1! So don’t forget to keep a buck on hand when you head out this weekend, and share a smile for your friendly neighborhood vendor. You will make their day!
