On February 17, 2016, WordsWest Literary Series presented "Love Lost and Found (and Lost Again)" with former Washington State Poet Laureate Kathleen Flenniken and bestselling/award-winning novelist Stephanie Kallos. Kathleen shared poems that explored, alongside other questions, the daily fluctuations of love found in married life. Stephanie shared the early courtship moments of a relationship that later drifted away from the protagonist of her novel Language Arts (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2015). Hedgebrook, a writing retreat for women, sponsored the evening. Hedgebrook alumna Lena Khalaf Tuffaha shared her favorite poem, "Precious" by Suheir Hammad. Below is a short YouTube video excerpt of the evening and a podcast of the whole presentation, including a Q & A.
