Lee Bassett and Cal Kinnear have been sharing thoughts on poetry and poetics, and giving one another notes on manuscripts over the last many years, as each has written his way into the literary landscape of the Pacific Northwest. On Thursday September 24th they share the podium at Arundel Books, and read from their most recent works.
Bassett will read from "Sudden Owl," his beautifully-designed thirteenth book, out this year through True Bug Press. Kinnear, current Poet Laureate of Vashon Island, will read from his volume of combined poetry, prose and translation, titled "The Great Wheel: Zero the Un-Naming," a joint publication of Taurolog (the author's own press) and Chatwin Books.
Location: Arundel Books in Occidental Square in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle. 209 Occidental Ave. S.
Reception begins at 6:00. Readings from 6:15–7:30 (Bassett will begin the evening, followed by Kinnear), followed by a book signing and conversation with the authors until 8:00. All are welcome.
