After the intermission, we got to hear an installment of the West Seattle Favorite Poem Project, a memorized excerpt from the long poem"Alphabet" by Inger Christensen, recited by Abi Pollokoff, of Open Books: A Poem Emporium, She did an amazing job tying in the theme of expanding existence, declaring "apricots exist!" The crowd was amazed and delighted.
The evening ended with an inspiring Q&A session with Aimee and Susan. One takeaway being that even serious writers might not write every single day, that there are many ways one can be a writer and still have a full life outside of writing.
The podcast audio is forthcoming.
