In exactly two weeks, Geraldine Mills will visit Seattle direct from the West of Ireland. Hear her read "Not of Place" in the video above or even better, come listen in person when she reads at the following places the weekend after next. Listen to this short youtube to get a sense of her subject matter and her style.
I first met Geraldine when we were both awarded residencies at the Tyrone Guthrie Center in Newbliss, Ireland. That was ten years ago and we've been friends and poets in crime ever since.
11 AM, Thursday, March 1st, Highline Community College, Student Union - Free and open to the public.
6:00 PM, Hyla Middle School, Bainbridge Island with me (Susan Rich) - Free and open to the public.
2 PM, Sunday, March 4th, Elliott Bay Book Company with me, Seattle, - Free and open to public.
This is Geraldine's first visit to the northwest; I know she's a poet and fiction writer you don't want to miss.
