Sat, February 3 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for an afternoon of Inland Northwest poetry at this book launch event for River City Fires by Derek Annis.

Derek Annis (they/he) is a neurodivergent poet from the Inland Northwest. He is the author of Neighborhood of Gray Houses (Lost Horse Press). They are an editor at Lynx House Press, and their poems have appeared in The Account, Colorado Review, Epiphany, The Gettysburg Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, Third Coast, and elsewhere.

Pulitzer Prize-winner Carl Phillips says, “To make of bewilderment itself a world serviceable enough to live in–to imagine a way through: this seems the chief imperative of River City Fires, whose astonishing poems hover around fires both actual and metaphorical in a landscape/riverscape/forestscape both recognizable and surreal.”

Derek will be joined by special guest, poet and musician Tim Greenup.
