Mark your calendars: Professor Kupinse Reads in Gig Harbor

Professor Bill Kupinse, former Poet Laureate of Tacoma, will be giving a poetry reading Thursday, September 30 at 7 p.m. at the Gig Harbor Library (4423 Point Fosdick Dr NW, Gig Harbor, 253-851-3793) as part of the Peninsula Library Poetry Series. The reading will include older poems from his book Fallow, and some of his new work from an in-process verse reinterpretation of The Tower Treasure, the first book in the Hardy Boys series. Professor Kupinse writes: “As anyone who has read the 1927 adventure book knows, The Tower Treasure really is a poem trapped in novel form; my goal is to let it out. Yes, I have my fingers crossed that I’ll attract an eventual lawsuit from Hardy Boys publishers Grosset and Dunlap, now a subsidiary of Pearson; it’s always nice to be noticed.”

We hope to see many of you there–
