Passing of the Laurels Ceremony
January 31, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
From The Stranger:
This is going to be a big night for literature in Washington. Outgoing state poet laureate Tod Marshall will officially pass on the laurels to Claudia Castro Luna, who will be the first woman of color and immigrant to assume the post. During his two-year tenure, Marshall edited an anthology called WA129. In recognition of that accomplishment, and in celebration of the peaceful transfer of poetic power, the book’s contributors will read and perform. Look forward to work from Seattle civic poet Anastacia Reneé, Duane Niatum, Georgia McDade, Phillip Red Eagle, Quenton Baker, Rachel Kessler, Dawn Pichon Barron, Bill Carty, and Shankar Narayan.
