We are proud to have been invited to participate in this year’s Poets in the Park festival in Redmond, WA. At 4pm, Printed Matter Vancouver co-founders Toni Lumbrazo Luna and Christopher Luna will read with all of the Clark County poets for whom we have published debut books: Tiffany Burba, Matthew Eiford-Schroder, and Jenney Pauer.
Poets in the Park organizer Michael Dylan Welch has also asked Christopher to read from his recently published full-length debut Message from the Vessel in a Dream during a new book showcase that will take place at 3pm.
Consider taking a road trip for this fun event featuring more than 70 poets from around the region: http://www.graceguts.com/poets-in-the-park
