What a magical night: perfect weather, welcoming venue, enthusiastic audience, and a killer lineup of poets ready to bring it to actual humans after more than a year of Zoom readings. I really enjoyed my first in-person reading in more thna a year. I am deeply grateful to Rebecca Smolen for inviting me to be a part of this event, and to Igor for being such a gracious and entertaining emcee. Below you will find photos and videos from this very special post-pandemic return to live poetry in Portland.
