Weathered Pages Reading

Parker Room, Higher Education Center,

Free and open to the public

Featuring YVCC Students and Staff

From YakimaMay 15th: Editors, Weathered Pages Anthology Jim Bodeen, Terry Martin, and Rob Prout.

A six-foot cedar post, the word POETRY carved on both the east and west sides, planted in a garden on a street corner in Yakima, pushpins stuck in the wood. For ten years, hundreds of people have pinned thousands of poems to the Poetry Pole at Blue Begonia Press. After time in the weather, the pages have been taken down and saved—until now. Poems collected here represent a decade of testimony pinned and flying from a cedar post planted in a garden. They may trigger what you're looking for in your own life.

There is room on the Poetry Pole for everybody
