On April 2, 2020, Governor Jay Inslee announced an extension of the stay-at-home order due to COVID-19 through May 4. Even in you’re not in Washington State, unless you’re an essential worker, it’s still recommended to stay at home to “flatten the curve” and protect those most vulnerable. It takes us a while to put events on our calendar — and it takes a while for us to take them off. As some local events are going to online format at this time, we’re trying to identify some and add them to the calendar while we mark other events as cancelled. If you see a live event here before May 4, assume that it’s cancelled and we haven’t got around to removing it yet. Please double-check the event website for events after that time as some Summer events are being cancelled as well. Thank you, stay home, and stay healthy!

Book Launch: The Elegy Beta by Mischa Willett

February 7 @ 7:00 pm - March 10 @ 8:30 pm

View Event Website
...or scroll down for more details!

Join us as we welcome a new book into the world! The Elegy Beta—the long-sought, the hoped-for coming, a terrifying apparition in the sky—is officially landing. These new poems imagine the angelic in a different register, while crafting observations on daily life that are meant to offer what one reviewer calls “astonishing moments of consolation.”

There will be time to mingle, hear some music, raise a toast to the success of the enterprise, hear some poems, and have books signed.

About the Book

The Elegy Beta is the follow-up poetry book to Mischa Willett’s critically-acclaimed debut, Phases. It features lyrical ruminations on subjects classical and contemporary, theological and practical, suffused with characteristic candor and wit. The long eponymous poem that anchors the collection is an extended meditation on angels, as a kind of tribute to the poet Rainer Maria Rilke.
