poetry in Kirkland

April 15, 2018

For National Poetry Month, the featured poets will be Anita K. Boyle and James Bertolino. The program, on Saturday, April 21, 2018, will begin at 4:30pm with a workshop on Collaboration (Boyle and Bertolino have collaborated on a number of chapbooks, among other projects), to be followed at 6:15pm by a reading and open mic.
