Join us for a poetry reading by author Kurt Caswell and student writers from 7-8 p.m. in The Grove Recital Hall, Music and Art Center, on the Wenatchee campus. Caswell will read from his work, and winners of WVC’s annual Earth Day Poetry Contest will join him on stage to read their winning submissions. A book signing will follow the reading (including his new book!).
