Carolyn Forché: 2018 Levertov Award Presentation & Reading

Join us for the 15th annual Denise Levertov Award presentation and reading.

Named for the poet Denise Levertov, who spent her last years in Seattle, the award is given annually to an artist, musician, or writer whose work exemplifies a serious and sustained engagement with faith.

This year’s event will honor poet and social activist Carolyn Forché, whose honors include fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Lannan Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Following the award presentation and reading, there will be a Q&A and reception with wine and dessert.

For more information on the award and Forché’s work, please visit the Image website.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP (via the ticket link) appreciated.
