Thursday, April 28 7P Hugo House

From Brian McGuigan:

The best reading series in Seattle–“Cheap Wine and Poetry”–gets busy for the bards this Thursday, April 28 with Roberto Carlos Ascalon, Elizabeth Austen, Paul Nelson and Katie Ogle. If you’re not there, you are seriously missing out. Richard Hugo House.

There was a standing-room-only crowd, the biggest in the history of the series, with at least 120 people and some turned away at the door.
