VERSO QUATRO: Zihuatanejo, Oishi, Lopez, Walker
You’ll want to catch this rare convergence. Joaquin Zihuatanejo, Mary Oishi, Jessica Helen Lopez, and Seth Walker will all share the same stage next Wednesday May 25th at 7:00 at the Projects, the new warehouse theater at 3614 High Street NE. We’re asking for a $5 donation but no one will be turned away.
YES. A GOOD NIGHT IS IN STORE. POWER-PACKED PERFORMANCES AND HOT BUTTON POETRY TALK.
In keeping with the spirit of Local Poets Guild, the event will be part reading and part panel discussion—so not only will you get to hear poems by these amazing forces, but you’ll get to hear them discuss their motivations and thoughts on poetry and the role of poetry in society. Richard Vargas will be moderating.
Both Mary Oishi and Jessica Helen Lopez have new books out from West End Press. And we’re lucky that there’s a day overlap in the visits of Joaquin Zihuatanejo and Seth Walker so we could bring all four together. I can’t wait to hear what all these unique poets have to say.
I’ll post bios and photos and more information tomorrow. Today, I just wanted to begin SHOUTING FROM THE ROOFTOP.
“You’ll want to catch this!”
