ALIVE AT THE CENTER Anthology Launch Reading

Readings from the dozens of Seattle poets published in the Alive at the Center anthology of poetry published by Ooligan Press. Cody Walker, co-editor and former Seattle Poet Populist, hosts with readings from local authors Kate Lebo,  Molly Tenenbaum,  Sierra Nelson, Jeannine Gailey,  Susan Rich,  Jared Leising,  Christine Deavel, Elizabeth Austen,  Kevin Craft,  Judith Roche,  Julie Larios, Holly Hughes, Megan Snyder-Camp Lehman, Jeremy Halinen, Rebecca Hoogs, Karen Finneyfrock, Jason Whitmarsh, Johnny Horton, Frances McCue, Christianne Balk, Deborah Woodard, Michael Spence, Belle Randall, and Sarah Galvin.

Alive at the Center, The Pacific Poetry Project’s first volume, aims to capture the thriving poetic atmosphere of the Pacific Northwest. It concentrates on the three major cities that define it— Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver B.C.—and features distinctive,contemporary poets who speak to the individual spirits of these Pacific Northwest cities.

The reading is free, and the bar will be open serving beer, wine, and spirits. Books for sale by Ooligan Press.
