Thursday at The Cleaners : AWP Offsite

We’ve got a line up of authors from our pages, and are in a fantastic location, close to Powell’s, and plenty of restaurants, bars, and nightlife.

Start with Happy Hour! with Northwest Film Forum‘s Cadence: Video Poetry Festival preview & popcorn. CASH BAR IS OPEN! See films featured in the upcoming festival as well as favorites from last year.

Author readings start at 7:30 and we’ll have two sets.

At 9:30, we welcome Seattle’s poetic scientists, Vis-à-Vis Society, experimenting on you, dear audience, as they preview the forthcoming, “100 Rooms: A Bridge Motel Project.”

The night is then turned over to DJ Lapaushi, from PDX
s Noche Libre Latinx DJ Collective. She’s bringing the groove and the beats and we’ll send you back out into the spring night, feeling energized and creatively inspired for Friday!
