September 12, 2020

With more annual festivals going virtual, the possibilities for armchair travel continue. The Utah Humanities Book Festival, now in its 23rd year, will be entirely virtual and feature scores of authors, events, and virtual conversations. The program starts today, Saturday, September 12, 2020, and continues through Thursday, October 22. The schedule is impressive and includes plenty of familiar names, such as Dayna Patterson. The events are free on Zoom with advance registration.

Just a quick reminder about SpeakEasy 25: Pig Tales, A Passel of Poetry, this afternoon, Saturday, July 20, 2019, at 4:00pm at Alluvial Farms, 6825 Goodwin Road, Everson (allow about 30 minutes from downtown Bellingham).

If you love pigs, poetry, or both, you’ll definitely want to come on out to Everson, Washington, on Saturday, July 20, 2019, for SpeakEasy 25: Pig Tales, A Passel of Poetry.

SpeakEasy’s first outdoor gathering will feature two beloved poets: the “Pig Poet,” David Lee, and Seattle’s own Paul Hunter.

The reading will take place at 4:00pm in an open field at Alluvial Farms, at 6825 Goodwin Road, Everson, just across the street from the Cloud Mountain Farm Center. If you want to sit down, BRING A CHAIR, and please BRING SUN PROTECTION! Farm tours will be available (meet the pigs!) and pastured pork will be for sale (bring a cooler for your purchases).

More David Lee here. More Paul Hunter here. More SpeakEasy here.

decisions, decisions…

What will you be doing on the evening of Wednesday, September 12, 2012? Here are two very tempting (poetic) options in Bellingham, both, alas, at the same time, 7:00 p.m.

At Village Books, recent Poet Laureate Samuel Green will read from First Up: Barnstorming for Poetry, with all proceeds of sales of the book to benefit Humanities Washington, which sponsors the Washington State Poet Laureate program.

At Whidbey Island Bank in Fairhaven, the Independent Writers’ Studio welcomes poet David Lee for a two-hour workshop. Space is limited; advance registration required.
