Where the Roses Smell the Best: A Literary Companion to Portland

Where the Roses Smell the Best: A Literary Companion to Portland

This is the first publication by Roosevelt High School's Unique Ink Publishing; Where the Roses Smell the Best is a collection of writings written by a diverse group of people about Portland. The writings engage with different aspects of what it means to live in Portland, whether that be expressed through poetry, prose, sketches, vignettes. This is a wonderfully colorful book, and the themes throughout all the pieces don't just relate to what it means to live in Portland, but what it means to live in this world in general.
