Open Mic at Barnes & Noble features Judith Barrington
September 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmfree
Sept. 24 is the next opportunity for you to read your three-minute piece of writing to a friendly audience, or just be a part of that audience, at the monthly 7 p.m. open mic at Barnes & Noble Vancouver, 7700 N.E. Fourth Plain.
Judith Barrington is the featured poet this time, reading from “Long Love: New and Selected Poems.”
In traditional or looser forms, she explores subjects such as being a lesbian, horses, the ocean, memory, love, grief, aging, disability, and facing one’s own mortality. Commentators have praised her fierce attention, wry humor, and socially and political alertness.
Open mic pieces need not be related to the featured book or its author. Everyone’s welcome to attend, whether or not they have an open mic piece to read.
