An Evening of Poetry at Island Books in Mercer Island, WA

In honor of National Poetry Month, Island Books will be hosting their first IN-STORE, IN-PERSON poetry event on Thursday, April 28, 2022 at 6:30pm!

We are thrilled to present three or four accomplished women poets who, between them, represent almost three or four generations of women writers.

  • Carol White Kelly, nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2004,  author of Out of Deep, Unordered Water will read from her new collection of poetry, Tell My Sister.
  • Mary Ann Woodruff, has followed her engaging and affective memoir (Last of the Good Girls) with an engaging and affective collection of poetry, Skylark.
  • Katerina Canyon, who teaches a poetry workshop in Seattle will read from her new book Surviving Home.
  • Heidi Seaborn, executive editor at The Adroit Journal, will read from various collections of her poetry including her latest An Insomniac’s Slumber Party with Marilyn Monroe.

Books are on hand now and will also be on sale at the event.
