Seven poets gather for group reading in Shoreline

Friday, March 24, 2017

As an art form of language and the distilled essences of the human condition, poetry offers a primary window into the aspirations and sorrows of our times.

In recognition of National Poetry Month in April, the Shoreline Public Art Program welcomes seven poets from around the Puget Sound region (from Bellingham to several islands; from Woodinville to Seattle’s north end) for a night of profound reflection at Darrell’s Tavern, widely recognized for its lively subculture of contemporary music.

Monday, April 3, 2017, 7:00 – 10:00pm will be the first time that Darrell’s has hosted a night of poetry. Darrell’s is located at 18041 Aurora Ave N, Shoreline 98133.

The seven poets (Roberta Feins, Susan Hawke, Christen Mattix, Britney Schroeder, Woron Ta Tele, Kilam Tel Aviv, Carolyne Wright) range from prize-winning, widely published authors to those who are in the early stages of their literary careers; they represent a diversity of voices from many different backgrounds and literary styles, from formal poetic verse to rap and hip hop.

Each poet will read for approximately 20 minutes; funding is provided by Shoreline’s Public Art Program. The event is free; apologies to those under 21 as Darrell’s is an adults-only tavern.
