THE AIRSTREAM POETRY FESTIVAL is a weekend getaway on October 19-21 to one of the few parks dedicated to the iconic polished aluminum trailers. The festival showcases up-and-coming as well as seasoned local talent and celebrates the PNW literary community. Although "poetry" is in the event name, prose is welcome, as are multi-disciplinary offerings with a literary intersection. 
PUBLISHERS, AUTHORS, AND ARTISTS: If you are interested in presenting at the festival with a workshop, table, or performance, please fill out the proposal form, here. The deadline for program proposals is July 15, 2018. 

The Dark Side of Tech

On Saturday, June 2 at 7 p.m., author Richard A. Walker will read from his new book Pictures of a Gone City. Walker has written a harrowing account of the Bay Area's spectacular tech boom, including mass inequality, a boiling housing crisis, rampant displacement, and severe environmental damage. Walker is currently director of the Living New Deal Project.

Join Brooke Budy on Friday, June 8 at 7 p.m. for a reception showcasing his artworks as Mother Foucault’s painter-in-residence. During the past year, Budy has created more than forty color-rich paintings of everyday life at the bookshop. The event will also feature readings by a cadre of local poets inspired by Budy's paintings, the bookshop, and owner Craig Florence. 
On Saturday, June 16 at 7 p.m. author B.J. Hollars and his six-year-old son will share excerpts from their adventure retracing the Oregon Trail. Hollars is founder and executive director of the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild, and associate professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
On Saturday, June 23 at 7 p.m. author Jodie Hollander will read from her debut collection of poetry My Dark Horses. Alert to the surreal comedy of the human condition, these Rimbaudesque poems trace a daughter's journey towards familial understanding and reconciliation. Hollander was The High Window Journal's 2017 Featured American Poet. Her poems have been praised by The Poetry School, The Compass, and the Denver Post
