Poets in Conversation – Wednesday, November 16, 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The library will host an evening of conversation with two local poets. Carol Prismon-Reed of Port Townsend has been writing poetry since junior high, and early on adopted an imagist, minimalist, and lyric style. In recent years she has been drawn to the classic poetry of China and has trans- lated many of her favorites. Her first chapbook, Footsteps in the Night Sky, was published last year. Bill Mawhinney of Port Ludlow has performed poetry in local retirement homes through an Arts to Elders program and for 13 years organized and hosted the Reading Series at Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend. The Port Townsend Arts Commission named him Angel of the Arts for 2011.
