Smack dab in the middle of March, WordsWest welcomes resistance to xenophobia and embraces our rich history of immigration. “Beware the Ides of March,” the soothsayer warned Julius Caesar, marking a turning point in history. What kind of turning point do we face?  Join prize winning fiction writer Donna Miscolta, and West Seattle poet and civil rights attorney Shankar Narayan on Wednesday, March 15 as they share with us their work and experiences. Each month we also host a community member to share his or her favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On March 15, 2017, we’ll hear a favorite poem from ACLU of Washington.

 

This evening is supported in part by a grant from Poets & Writers, Inc. and by Seattle’s Office of Arts & Culture. Also, refreshments will be served!
