Elliott Bay Books Grand Opening! Plus Dead Poets Society
Elliott Bay Books is having their Grand Opening Celebration at the new location this Thursday April 15th from 4-7pm. Be there.
The Elliott Bay Book Company
1521 Tenth Avenue
Seattle, Washington 98122
And after you celebrate at Elliott Bay, make sure to walk on over to Hugo House, just a couple blocks away, for the Dead Poets Society reading. It should be a lot of fun.
When: Thursday, April 15, 7:30 p.m. at Richard Hugo House
Celebrate National Poetry Month at Hugo House with readings of famous dead poets Richard Brautigan, Audre Lorde, Frank O’Hara and Anne Sexton by local living poets Peter Pereira, Nicole Hardy, Matt Gano and Jourdan Keith. Hosted by poet Kate Lebo.
For Dead Poets Society, each living poet will portray a dead poet from the canon and read his or her work; it will be part costume party, part poetry reading. As an extra wrinkle—since Hugo House’s mission is to support new work, all of the poets will write one original poem in the vein of, inspired by or in response to a work or the life of their selected writer.
Tickets for Dead Poets Society are $10 ($6 for Hugo House members, seniors and students) and are on sale now through brownpapertickets.com.
