A Wonderful Evening with Three or Four Generations of Women Poets

Please join us for A Wonderful Evening with Three or Four Generations of Women Poets and (1st Generation) Snacks.

In honor of National Poetry Month and as a fun kick-off to Independent Bookstore Day on April 30th  we are having our first IN-STORE, IN-PERSON (In other words: at the store and in person only) Poetry Party at Island Books!  

We are thrilled to present three or four accomplished women poets who, between them, represent almost three or four generations of women writers.

  • Carol White Kelly, nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2004,  author of Out of Deep, Unordered Water will read from her new collection of poetry, Tell My Sister.
  • Mary Ann Woodruff, has followed her engaging and affective memoir (Last of the Good Girls) with an engaging and affective collection of poetry, Skylark.
  • Katerina Canyon, who teaches a poetry workshop in Seattle will read from her new book Surviving Home
  • Heidi Seaborn, executive editor at The Adroit Journal, will read from various collections of her poetry including her latest An Insomniac's Slumber Party with Marilyn Monroe.
