Joanne the Poet will be giving a reading on Friday, August 18, from 7-8:45 p.m. at the Steilacoom Public Library. She will be a guest of the Deep Waters poetry group. Joanne plans to read from her new poetry book “The Fates” and to talk a little bit about how she put the poems together to form the book and how she got it published. Those attending can address their fate, by reading at the Open Mic! One of the best parts of an evening like this one is how all the wonderful poems and poets come together!
