Ask the Oracle: Suzanne Morrison, Doug Nufer, and Megan Snyder-Camp [Offsite]

Hugo House and Hotel Sorrento team up for this monthly divination series hosted by poet Johnny Horton. Come early, write your most burning questions down, and a panel of writers will divine your fate by choosing a random passage from their respective books.

Tonight’s panel of writer-oracles are fiction writer and memoirist Suzanne Morrison, author of Yoga Bitch; the prolific Seattle-based writer Doug Nufer, author most recently of the constraint-based novel, Lifeline Rule (Spuyten Duyvil); and poet Megan Snyder-Camp, who had two new collections published last year: Wintering (Tupelo) and The Gunnywolf (Bear Star).

Feel free to drop by at 7 pm to write your questions down and have a drink. Divination will begin at 7:30 pm.

Note: This event takes place at Hotel Sorrento in the Fireside Room (900 Madison Street).
