Poetry Readings, with Kelli Russell Agodon, Lana Hechtman Ayers, and Susan Rich
This group poetry reading promises a cornucopia of talent and delight from three widely published and anthologized Northwest poets.
Kelli Russell Agodon from Kingston, editor of the literary journal Crab Creek Review, reads from her second full-length collection, Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room. "Here is a fresh, distinctive voice that is consistently engaging and surprising." - Carl Dennis
Lana Hechtman Ayers, also from Kingston, poetry editor of the Crab Creek Review and publisher of the Concrete Wolf Poetry Chap ook Series, reads from her newest book A New Red, a fairy tale for grownups. "These very human poems are built of angelic music, and ask serious questions ofthe world." - James Bertolino.
Susan Rich, a former Fullbright Fellow and a teacher of writing at Highline Community College, appears with her third book, The Alchemist's Kitchen. "...a collection of poems sensual yet exact in their language, generous in the range and power of their emotion." - J.M. Coetzee.
