Join Marshall and friends Saturday at Auntie’s

Its been two years since Spokane poet Tod Marshall was chosen to the Washington State Poet Laureate.

How time flies.

Marshall, a professor of English at Gonzaga University, will celebrate those years at 4:15 p.m. Saturday afternoon with a group of poet friends by holding a group reading at Auntie's Bookstore.

Author of such collections as "Bugle," "The Tangled Line" and "Dare Say," Marshall will be joined by Chris Howell, Nance Van Winckel, Maya Zeller, Laura Read, Devin Devine, Terry Lawhead and Kate Peterson.

Also, those attending the reading will be able to take free copies of "WA129+" an anthology expansion of "WA129," the latter of which will be available for purchase. "WA129" is a collection of poems, chosen and curated by Marshall, written by Washington writers.

The event is free and open to the public.
