$20.00 Members
$30.00 Non-members

Come hear celebrated poets Ilya Kaminsky (Deaf Republic) and Katie Farris (Standing in the Forest of Being Alive) as they read and engage in conversation about their latest projects, including Katie’s recently published collection that’s been called “luminous” by Carolyn Forché and “real genius” by Kaveh Akbar. Her writing has been extolled by such recent visiting Lighthouse poets as Jericho Brown, Victoria Chang, and others. A thoughtful engagement for any and all, whether their poets or writers or interested in language.
