At Elliott Bay Books Tonight

From the website:

PETER PEREIRA, REBECCA LOUDON & JARED LEISING
Friday, September 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Tonight we feature what should be an engaging trio of poets, both established and emerging, creators of some of the better work coming out of this corner of the country. Physician and poet Peter Pereira, founding editor of Floating Bridge Press, will read from his newest collection, What's Written on the Body (Copper Canyon Press). Joining him is Rebecca Loudon, here with two new books, Radish King (Ravenna Press) and Navigate, Amelia Earhart's Letters Home (No Tell Books). Also on tap here is Jared Leising, who teaches English at Cascadia Community College, volunteers for 826 Seattle, and has a chapbook out, The Widows and Orphans of Winesburg, Ohio (Pudding House Publications).

Our reading has a "star" in the PI listing this morning, meaning the books editor recommends it. Meaning, you need to go!
