“She Sinks Like a Message”: A Braided Poetry Reading & Conversation

Join us in the Hugo House Lapis Theater for an evening of poetry and conversation between three award-winning Washington poets. Kelli Russell Agodon, Katerina Canyon, and Caitlin Scarano will read in a call-and-response style and discuss identity and writing in the complexity of our current social context.

The House bar will be open to serve alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
