Featured readers include Robert Pinsky, former U.S. Poet Laureate; poet Heather McHugh; and Aidan Lang, Seattle Opera’s General Director. Hosted by KUOW’s Marcie Sillman, the night will also feature community members reading their chosen poems.

Presented by: Town Hall, Seattle Public Library, Poetry Northwest, Seattle Arts & Lectures, and Hugo House. Elliott Bay Book Company is the partner bookseller for this event.
