Hugo House and Hotel Sorrento team up for this monthly divination series hosted by poet Johnny Horton. Come early, write your most burning questions down, and a panel of writers will divine your fate by choosing a random passage from their respective books.
Tonight Hugo House is excited to have Jordan Scott, visiting from British Columbia and celebrating the recent publication of Night & Ox (Coach House Books), a long poem that grew out of Jordan’s first months of fatherhood, a time that cosmically coincided with the launch of the European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission.
Joining Scott are the prolific Seattle-based writer Doug Nufer, author most recently of the constraint-based novel, Lifeline Rule (Spuyten Duyvil); and poet Megan Snyder-Camp, who had two new collections published last year: Wintering (Tupelo) and The Gunnywolf (Bear Star).
Feel free to drop by at 7 pm to write your questions down and have a drink. Divination will begin at 7:30 pm.
Note: This event takes place at Hotel Sorrento in the Fireside Room (900 Madison Street).
