PORT HADLOCK — Tess Gallagher of Port Angeles and Carlos Reyes of Portland, Ore., will engage in conversation — with each other and with their audience — and share their poetry in a free event at the Jefferson County Library on June 12.
The 6:30 p.m. program is open to the public at the library, 620 Cedar Ave.
Gallagher and Reyes share a connection to Ireland: She spends part of the year in her cottage in County Sligo while he lives part-time in his 300-year-old place in County Clare.
His books include “Poems of Love and Madness” and “The Book of Shadows,” while hers are, among many others, “Midnight Lantern” and “Boogie-Woogie Crisscross” with Seattle writer Lawrence Matsuda.
Gallagher has just published “Is, Is Not,” her 11th poetry collection on Graywolf Press.
For information about the June reading and discussion, phone the library at 360-385-6544.
