On Thursday, October 22nd, Lit Crawl Seattle is bringing you readings from more than 65 authors at 20 different venues. The full schedule of events is a little bit daunting. How are you supposed to choose three readings out of this embarassment of riches? Let the Seattle Review of Books help! Here's our second suggested itinerary:
You could attend a whole evening's worth of poetry readings at Lit Crawl with a nice mix of new, up-and-coming, and established names, providing an excellent cross-section of where Northwest poetry is right now.
2. Chances are good you've already attended Cheap Wine & Poetry. It's just probability in action: Hugo House is always packed full of people during CW&P, and the series has been going on for years so it's likely you were in that crowd at some point. This special Lit Crawl edition of CW&P features wine at a buck a glass and readings from Arlene Kim, Matt Gano, and Seattle Civic Poet Claudia Castro Luna, with host Jeanine Walker.
3. Storied poetry journal Poetry Northwest caps your poetry adventure at Sole Repair, with readings from Clare Johnson, Suzanne Bottelli, and Emily Bedard. Poetry Northwest editor Kevin Craft will host the evening.
