Cancelled - Mark Petterson with Rebecca Brown
*This event has been cancelled.
Poet Mark Petterson teaches writing at the University of Iowa, but he returns to Seattle tonight to read from his new book, Transfiguration (Spartan Press). “These are worldly poems, both in subject and approach. And Petterson has an eye for just the right detail to reveal the world, just as a poem or short story can do the work a novel does, in miniature, in a camera flash. There’s both grit and tenderness here. Read this, and you may come away comforted or wiser, and certainly you’ll know a little more of the world.” --Kevin Rabas.
Reading with Mark Petterson tonight is beloved Seattle writer Rebecca Brown, senior member of the MFA Faculty at Goddard College and MFA and IAS studies Faculty at University of Washington, Bothell. She is the author of many books, including American Romances, and, most recently, Not Heaven, Somewhere Else (Tarpaulin Sky Press).
