Every Last Word - A Copper Canyon Press Event at Hugo House

Join Copper Canyon Press for their annual poetry mixer, reading, and book sale. This year the theme is EVERY LAST WORD and the featured author is Jericho Brown. The evening will be a celebration of the gift that is given between the poem and the poetry reader. Copper Canyon staff will be on hand to chat with guests about what they do, and more importantly to play poetry matchmaker, searching for the right book to light up each reader. The first 200 people to RSVP (link below) will receive a complimentary book of poetry at the door. The event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required.

Featured author Jericho Brown is an award winning, roof-raising, highly dynamic poet. He won the American Book Award for his first collection, Please, and will read from his highly anticipated second book, New Testament. Executive Editor Michael Weigers will join Brown on stage to do a bit of dialoging about the making of the book. After the reading, attendees are invited to stick around, shop from our table for holiday gifts, and raise a glass to another great year of poetry.

Venue: Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave, Seattle WA 98122
