A mix of memoir and poetry will be featured during a two-person reading event tonight at Auntie's Bookstore. Authors Joseph Haeger and Lauren Gilmore will begin reading at 7 p.m.
Haeger, a graduate of Mead High School, was the focus of a feature by Spokesman-Review columnist Cindy Hval. His book, "Learn to Swim," is a reflection of his 10-year friendship with a now-deceased friend.
Spokane native Gilmore won the 2013 poetry Grand Slam, which earned her entry both to the National Poetry Slam and the Individual World Poetry Slam. Author of the poetry collection "Outdancing the Universe," Gilmore was featured at the 2016 Get Lit! literary festival. To read three poems by Gilmore, click here.
The event, as usual at Auntie's, is free and open to the public.
