56 Days of August: Portland Launch and Poetry Reading
October 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come join Postcard Poetry Fest alums during a poetry reading and open mic event to celebrate the launch of the 56 Days of August anthology from Five Oaks Press.
The yearly August Postcard Poetry Festival has become an international event.
To celebrate the 10th year of the Fest and the community that has developed around it, Paul Nelson (Co-Founder of the Fest), Ina Roy, and Judy Kleinberg have edited an anthology of poems written for the 2016 August Postcard Poetry Fest. The anthology, 56 Days of August: Poetry Postcards, is available this month. All revenue from the 10th August Poetry Postcard Fest benefitted the 4th Cascadia Poetry Festival.
Come to the bookshop on Friday. Enjoy a beverage, hear poets read their best and latest works, and buy a book.
