Hi there, my name is Kira Lesley and I am a Portland-born author, historian, and singer-songwriter who has performed at many local haunts, including OMSI After Dark, Alberta Street Public House, and Portland Pride. This is my official web site. Thank you for stopping by. Feel free to leave a respectful note, or join my mailing list!
I had a piece published in Oregon Humanities: Beyond the Margins reflecting on my time as archivist at the Southern Oregon Historical Society during the pandemic and the disastrous fires of September 2020. The piece is called “Preserving the Future: On Navigating Loss and Collecting Histories.” https://www.oregonhumanities.org/rll/beyond-the-margins/preserving-the-future/
