1111 SW Broadway Portland, OR 97205

In conjunction with our 30th anniversary, Literary Arts is proud to relaunch Poetry Downtown, a three-part subscription series featuring three distinguished poets reading and discussing their work at the intimate Winningstad Theater. A question-and-answer session and book signing follow each reading.

Poetry Downtown will launch with Terrance Hayes, the author of four collections of poetry, including his most recent, Lighthead (2010), which won the National Book Award for poetry. A review ofLighthead in The New York Times said, “Hayes’s fourth book puts invincibly restless wordplay at the service of strong emotions.” How To Be Drawn, his new collection of poems, is forthcoming from Penguin in 2015. The series continues with Mark Doty on April 27 and Anne Carson on May 16. Click here to visit the Poetry Downtown homepage.
