Some poetry readings blow your mind and expand your understanding of yourself and other people and the world. Others make you want to jump in a moss bog and die. This one, organized by local poetry pros Gramma Press, belongs squarely in the former category. Pulitzer Prize-winner Tyehimba Jess will perform poems from Olio, his four-dimensional book about the history of American music from minstrel shows to ragtime. Kaveh Akbar (Calling a Wolf a Wolf) and Seattle civic poet Anastacia-Reneé will join him with stellar poems of their own. But it’s not all poetry! My favorite dance group in town, Au Collective, will perform Moonshine. It’s a new cabaret from Imana Gunawan about the moon’s feelings. Does it love us? Does it hate us? Will it ever just stop?
