At this event, we’re celebrating Entre Ríos’ newest book Woodland, a collaboration between Knox Gardner and Aaron Otheim. Started during the early season fires of 2017, the book is a fractured and broken attempt to come to terms with the impending climate catastrophe though poetry, music, and essay. Knox will discuss a bit more about the background of the music of Edward MacDowell, that has been reconfigured by Aaron and how the poems relate to and attempt to fracture this Romantic and nationalistic work.
This is a going to be great way to hear poems and background that won’t be presented at the official book launch at Hugo House on June 13th.
If the weather is good, word is Entre Ríos is parking their old Westy out front and serving birthday pie. So let’s hope for good weather!
Knox Gardner is a poet, publisher and neighborhood activist who has lived in Seattle since 1994.
