This Winter we are partnering with Write 253 and hosting a Poetry Series that will feature great local poets reading their work in the Wagner House here at Lakewold Gardens! Each event has two featured poets with a youth poet opening. At the end the poets will stick around for a Q&A. Books / the event poster (freshly pressed in a limited edition run by the Write253 Pop Up Print Shop at the Washington State History Museum) will be for sale during each event.

⫸ There is a suggested donation of 10 dollars. ⫷
