From the Seattle Public Library website:

Join us for a quarterly poetry series where local poets read from their work and discuss poetry with the audience. Featured tonight: Claudia Castro Luna, Catherine Bull, & Scott Ferry.

Claudia Castro Luna served as Seattle’s Civic Poet from 2015 to 2017 and has recently been chosen as Washington State’s new Poet Laureate. She is the author of Killing Marías (Two Sylvias Press) and This City, (Floating Bridge Press). Born in El Salvador, she came to the U.S. in 1981 and is the recipient of a King County 4Culture grant, and a Jack Straw Fellow.

Catherine Bull’s poetry has appeared or is forthcoming from Bellingham Review, FIELD, Gyroscope Review, Literary Bohemian, The Operating System, and Poetry Northwest among other journals. She holds degrees in Poetry and English from Oberlin College and U.C. Davis and lives in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.

Scott Ferry helps Veterans heal as an RN. He attempts to be handsome enough for his wife and patient enough for his daughter. In former lives, he practiced acupuncture and was a high school teacher. Recent work has been featured in Radius Lit, Poetry Superhighway, and upcoming in Pontoon.
