Carolyne Wright, times two
January 14, 2016
Bellingham poets and poetry fans will be treated to a double dose of good words when Carolyne Wright visits for a pair of readings on Sunday, January 17, and Monday, January 18, 2016.
On Sunday, Carolyne Wright (lead editor) will be joined by Ana Maria Spagna, Miranda Pearson and Christine Holbert (publisher) to read from Raising Lilly Ledbetter: Women Poets Occupy the Workplace, a “ground-breaking anthology of poems by 120 women in over 60 occupations, giving voice to working women world-wide.” The reading and book signing at Village Books will begin at 4:00pm.
On Monday, Carolyne Wright will be the featured poet at Bellingham’s weekly poetrynight. This special event will be held in the Encore Room of the Mount Baker Theatre and will include an open mic. Sign-ups start at 7:45pm, poetry starts at 8:00pm sharp.
Since its founding in 1995, poetrynight has provided opportunities for new and established writers — local, regional and national — to share their work before a friendly and enthusiastic audience in coffee shops and classrooms, basements and concert halls across Whatcom and Skagit counties. Poetrynight can be found every Monday evening in the lower-level meeting room of the Bellingham Public Library (after hours, enter through the back of the building) and welcomes new and returning readers and listeners.
