Poet Walk: There’s something new and literary coming to the Edmonds Art Walk, which is held from 5 to 7 p.m. the third Thursday of each month in downtown Edmonds.
The Poet Walk will make its debut with Sheri LaVay reading at 7 p.m. Thursday at Cafe Louvre, 210 Fifth Ave. S., Edmonds. LaVay will read “Blank Canvas,” Poet Walk’s featured poem this month, and some of her other works. She is a member of EPIC Group Writers, a local writing group.
Each month, a local poet or poets will read their works and meet the public as part of the art walk. If you are interested in being a featured poet, contact Poet Walk director Kaylee Tilton, 425-328-9622.
