Literary Fires at C & P Coffee: Tonight's the Night @ 7:00pm
Literary fires of poetry and prose are igniting tonight. I cringe to use fire as a metaphor after being in a real fire last summer in Spain. While at an artist's retreat, Fundacion Valparaiso, the town of Mojacar and surrounding towns caught fire. It was the hottest summer in Southern Europe for 100 years and the fires outside of Barcelona had used up much needed resources. It was one of the scariest experiences of my life - and that's coming from a woman who worked in Gaza and in Sarajevo in 1996.
The illustrious West Seattle Blog has covered our reading and we are a starred event in The Stranger so I'm hoping for a good crowd at C & P. Along with the fabulously talented Elizabeth Austen and Harold Taw, we have also been in touch with the Seattle Fire Marshall who has sent some interesting tips along.
The night is co-sponsored by the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture in the form of a CityArtist grant.
I hope you can make it !
