Paul Hunter in Tacoma

February 5, 2018

On Friday, February 9, 2018, the King’s Books Distinguished Writer Series presents a reading by Paul Hunter.

In addition to being an engaging reader and raconteur, Hunter is the author of seven full-length collections of poetry and three chapbooks. His first volume of farming poems, Breaking Ground (2004) was reviewed in the New York Times and received the 2004 Washington State Book Award. Subsequent volumes include Ripening (2007), Come the Harvest (2008), Stubble Field (2012), and, most recently Clownery: In lieu of a life spent in harness (2017), the autobiography of an artist and teacher resembling the author. (Read more about Hunter and Clownery in The New Yorker article by Stephanie Burt.)

Paul Hunter has published fine letterpress poetry under the imprint of Wood Works since 1994, including scores of books, broadsides, and pamphlets.

The King’s Books reading is free and will begin with an open mic.
