The Trumpiad: Cody Walker and Richard Kenney

Did you know that "Mussolini" rhymes with "teeny"? The forces of mockery, rhythm, and rhyme join together when poets Cody Walker and Richard Kenney visit for a special Sunday evening event to read their poems inspired by our current president. Cody Walker, visiting from Ann Arbor, Michigan, is Seattle's former Poet Populist, a weekly blogger at the Kenyon Review, and the author of three poetry collections, including The Trumpiad, all of whose proceeds will go to the ACLU. Richard Kenney is a professor at the University of Washington, a former MacArthur Fellow, and the author of four collections of poetry. His anti-Trump verse was recently featured in the New York Times.
