Portland poet Nancy Flynn will be among the poets and writers reading from their work at Jack Straw Cultural Center in Seattle on Sept. 12 to celebrate the Raven Chronicle’s latest journal, “Sound Tracks.”
The celebration will be from 7 to 9 p.m. at 4261 Roosevelt Way NE. The event is free and open to the public. Copies of the $9 magazine will be on sale.
“Everyone’s life has its own “soundtrack”—certain sounds or songs that whenever they’re heard reawaken a memory. Music plays this role for many. But it could be the sound of a waterfall, or traffic noises, or nightly arguments on the other side of the wall; the wailing of sirens, the music of bird song. Whatever the memory there’s a story connected to it, or perhaps a poem, or a painting.”
