Pig War Camp Walk San Juan Island

I have been invited by Mike Vouri to talk about the Pig War and my manuscript, Pig War & Other Songs of Cascadia, Saturday, April 11, at 1PM at the American Camp on San Juan Island, and to take a guided poetry walk.

Pig War

I was fortunate enough to get a grant from SICA a few years ago and a residency at the Whiteley Center to begin this project and now I have a galley version of the book I’ve made available at the open mic nights I regularly attend and will have copies available for attendees, warts and all! (I mean the manuscripts, not the people.)

And a 1PM reading means there is a LOT of time for after-reading talk and the usual activities which I imagine will include libations. Thank you Mike for the invite,  for your interest in this work and for the opportunity to visit your remarkable island.
