Fishtrap—a year-round writer's conference/workshop/lecture series based in beautiful Wallowa County, Oregon—will be reaching out to Western Washington readers and writers in an evening of readings, conversation, and (free!) wine and cheese at Phinney Books. The event is free and open to the public—all are welcome.
Joining host David Laskin will be three terrific Western Washington writers who have taught or spoken at Fishtrap in the past (or will this summer): the poet Holly Hughes, the memoirist Karen Fisher, and the fantasy writer Nisi Shawl. Each will read from current work, and, together with Fishtrap executive director Shannon McNerney, they will share an intimate sense of what Fishtrap is about, where it is going and why it is so important today.
