CAConrad Visits UW

For those of you who don’t know, CAConrad describes himself as “the son of white trash asphyxiation whose childhood included selling cut flowers along the highway for his mother and helping her shoplift,” and we were lucky enough to have this incredible poet visit UW last week. His visit included a reading at Night Heron books where he read from his collection The Book of Frank, as well as his latest A Beautiful Marsupial Afternoon.  He also hosted one of his somatic workshops where new ideas for poetry/art/creation are generated through a series of exercises. These included dark chocolate and essential oils. Essentially, we love CA at UW.  We hope he visits us again soon!
