Blue Moon Over Thurman Street

To walk a street is to be told a story. Blue Moon Over Thurman Street weaves a story not only of a particular street but of an American way of life. For more than 40 years, Ursula K. Le Guin has walked Thurman Street in Portland, Oregon, listening to its story and dreaming of a book in which to share it. On a blue moon in 1985, Le Guin enlisted the talents of Roger Dorband, a fellow Portlander, to collaborate over the next seven years to tell this story.
