Local Author, Jane Kurtz, Celebrates Book Launch With Events Throughout Portland

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PORTLAND, Ore. - Jul 31, 2018 - Award-winning author Jane Kurtz is celebrating the release of her new book, What Do They Do With All that Poo, with visits to area book stores in August. This is a great opportunity for local families to meet an award-winning, local author, while supporting independent, local bookstores!

Kurtz says that her recent books draw heavily on Portland, where she was born but didn’t live as an adult until eight years ago. “The Oregon Zoo’s Zoo Doo is an inspiration for all of us trying to improve the world one back yard at a time—thanks to the Columbia Trust and Audubon Society Back Yard project,” she says. “Writing a book about zoo poo turned out to be both hilarious and educational for me and my readers. And my recent middle grade novel, Planet Jupiter, also looks at Portland tree huggers and buskers and changing neighborhoods through the affectionate eyes of someone seeing such things for the first time.”
