Eagle Harbor Books, Bainbridge Washington, Hosts:
BLUE BEGONIA PRESS POETS
MARCH 12, SUNDAY, 3PM
Weathered Pages: The Poetry Pole. For ten years a four-by-four wood pole has stood in the side yard at the home of Blue Begonia Press in Yakima, where it has received poems with push-pins from countless poets who also paused to read the work placed there by others. Editor Jim Bodeen, Keeper of the Pole, in concert with poet/editors Terry Martin, Dan Peters, and artist/poet/editor Rob Prout, distilled this collection of works enduring the tests of weather and time into the book Weathered Pages.
They will be joined by Bainbridge poets Lindsay Brown, Kristin Henshaw, and John Willson, along with Jenifer Lawrence of Poulsbo, Gayle Kaune of Port Townsend, and Alice Derry of Port Angeles, in a reading celebrating this quintessentially democratic venue.
