Join us for our monthly poetry night! This time, we welcome Sam Roxas-Chua (Saying Your Name Three Times Under Water), Stephanie Adams-Santos (Swarm Queen’s Crown, a Lambda Literary finalist), and Armin Tolentino.
It’s our annual Pride Foundation Literary Fundraiser! This is one of the most exciting events we have every year, where we get to highlight the great work done for the queer community by the local (Pacific NW) organization, Pride Foundation, and hear fantastic work by local queer authors. This year we’ll hear from Kate Gray (Carry the Sky), Karelia Stetz-Waters (For Good), Sam Roxas-Chua (Fawn Language), and April Daniels (Dreadnought). You’ll have an opportunity to donate to Pride Foundation after hearing about all of the amazing work they do, have authors read to you, nosh on snacks, and have a drink. Join us, it’s one of our “must not miss” events of the year!
This afternoon we’ll be joined by two authors, the local Sam Roxas-Chua, and Michael Mirolla, coming to us all the way from Toronto. Sam is a Eugene poet and his book, Fawn Language, was published in 2014. Michael describes his writing as a mix of magic realism, surrealism, speculative fiction, and meta-fiction. He’ll be reading from his book that came out late last year, Lessons in Relationship Dyads.
