A Night with Poet Populist, Cody Walker
Wednesday, May 7, 2008
5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
HUB 106A "The Gallery"
Join Cody Walker and members of Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honors
society, for an evening of poetry and lively discussion. Cody Walker,
voted Seattle "Poet Populist" for 2007-2008, teaches English at the
University of Washington and poetry through Seattle Arts and Lectures'
Writers in the Schools program. He also serves as a writer-in-residence
at the Richard Hugo House and the Seattle Art Museum. Cody received the
2003 James Boatwright III Prize for Poetry from Shenandoah and the 2005
Distinguished Teaching Award from the UW English Department. His work
appears on buses and bookmarks, as well as in Best American Poetry, Best
New Poets, Parnassus, Slate, Prairie Schooner, Subtropics, and Light.
His first book, "Shuffle and Breakdown," will be published in the fall
of 2008 by Waywiser Press.
Cody Walker and student volunteers will read selections from "Shuffle
and Breakdown" and other poems and open up discussion about the texts.
This is not a traditional poetry reading, but a fun, interactive, and
informal evening with one of Seattle's most popular poets and one of the
UW's most beloved English teachers. Come hang out with Cody and company
next Wednesday evening at the HUB!
