Search for Meaning Book Festival at Seattle University this Saturday
This Saturday, February 4th, is the Search for Meaning Book Festival at Seattle University. I'll be speaking and reading about "Your Own Private Walden: Poetry and Power." Other writers include Francis McCue, Deborah Jarvis, and David Gutterson. There are literally dozens and dozens of presentations to choose from. You can find out more about the event right here in this article in today's Seattle Times.
In other news, Richard Hugo House has a new director: Tree Swenson. Swenson is co-founder of Copper Canyon Press and (according to the Times) was also a friend of Richard Hugo.
If one needs to search for meaning in life, Seattle seems a very good place to conduct such research.
