Come join us for the first NW Voices event of 2022 on Friday, April 22, 2022 featuring poet Kelli Russell Agodon. April is National Poetry Month and Agodon will give an online reading via Zoom beginning at 7:00 p.m. Specific Zoom information can be found on the library’s website http://www.longviewlibrary.org/nwvoices.php.
Kelli Russell Agodon’s newest book is Dialogues with Rising Tides from Copper Canyon Press. She is the cofounder of Two Sylvias Press where she works as an editor and book cover designer.
Her other books include Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room (Foreword Indies Book of the Year in Poetry), Hourglass Museum (Finalist for the Washington State Book Award in Poetry), The Daily Poet: Day-By-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice (coauthored with Martha Silano), and Fire on Her Tongue: An Anthology of Contemporary Women’s Poetry. She lives in a sleepy seaside town in Washington State on traditional lands of the Chimacum, Coast Salish, S'Klallam, and Suquamish people where she is an avid paddleboarder and hiker. She teaches at Pacific Lutheran University’s low-res MFA program, the Rainier Writing Workshop. Kelli is currently part of a project between local land trusts and artists to help raise awareness for the preservation of land, ecosystems, and biodiversity called Writing the Land. www.agodon.com / www.twosylviaspress.com
