Launch Party at the Moore Theatre Tonight
The Poetry On Buses website goes live today with a year of weekly featured poets and a new poem every day. Watch for the buses and bus stops carrying graphics and placards of poetry along Rapid Ride routes, and sign up on the website for poetry to be delivered to your mailbox.
Best of all, come celebrate with us TONIGHT at the Moore Theatre where all of the 365 poets will be honored and we’ll share music, poetry reading and community. Two buses will be parked in front of the Moore for a first look. Thank you, Metro King County for providing the buses as a space to experience poetry tonight and throughout year.
Doors open at 6:30 and the show gets underway at 7:30. Read about the performer lineup. Our planning poet Roberto Ascalon will emcee, with special guest Hollis Wong-Wear.
