Writerly events this week

I’m heading to Spokane for Get Lit! tomorrow, which is very exciting — but also wanted to mention what’s going on in Seattle, particularly tonight’s Letters from Temuko: A Bilingual Evening of Poetry, Story and Song at Richard Hugo House. Seattle poets Eugenia Toledo and Carolyne Wright will present a literary travelogue of their recent cultural exchange to Chile and read from a bilingual chapbook of work by Chilean poets as well as their own poetry and reflections.

I’m looking forward to Get Lit! this weekend — especially to An Evening with Jane Smiley tomorrow night, In Conversation with Charles Baxter on Friday night — and all the other readings and workshops taking place all weekend.

There are author panels galore all day Friday and Saturday, and I’m looking forward to participating in A Female Perspective on Writing with Jane Smiley, Kathryn Trueblood, and Laurie Notaro.

On Saturday, I’ll be doing a reading with Brenda Miller, as well as an afternoon workshop with Pamela Holway, Ken Letko, Glenda Burgess, and Kathy Fagan.

And, as if there weren’t enough to look forward to, I’m packing for sunshine and temperatures in the sixties.
