6pm - Poetry Reading - Erynn Rowan Laurie reads from her book FIREFLIES at ABSOLUTE ZERO
A map of a life, written in location and longing, its calligraphy the surreal moments between dream and waking. The poems are shaped by myth, the Gaelic poetic tradition, dream worlds, personal history, and the grey-green landscape of the Salish Sea. From snowfall in the Hoh rainforest to the sensuality of a lover's touch, the poems span decades of a life in motion, finally finding a home between the mountains and waters of the Pacific Northwest.
Erynn Rowan Laurie, writer, poet, and professional madwoman formerly living on the shores of the Salish Sea, now lives in Trieste. Author of Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom, she is inspired by the early Irish poetic tradition and the place of the geilt, the mad poet, in Irish myth and literature. Born in New England, she joined the Navy and traveled to Hawaii and the west coast, where she fell in love with western Washington and has spent the last three decades getting to know the land, the waters, and the dreamscape of her chosen home.
