A Night with Poet Populist, Cody Walker
Wednesday, May 7, 2008

5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
HUB 106A “The Gallery”

Join Cody Walker and members of Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honors society, for an evening of poetry and lively discussion. Cody Walker, voted Seattle “Poet Populist” for 2007-2008, teaches English at the University of Washington and poetry through Seattle Arts and Lectures’ Writers in the Schools program. He also serves as a writer-in-residence at the Richard Hugo House and
the Seattle Art Museum. Cody received the 2003 James Boatwright III Prize for Poetry from Shenandoah and the 2005 Distinguished Teaching Award from the UW English Department. His work
appears on buses and bookmarks, as well as in Best American Poetry, Best New Poets, Parnassus, Slate, Prairie Schooner, Subtropics, and Light. His first book, “Shuffle and Breakdown,” will be published in the fall of 2008 by Waywiser Press.

Cody Walker and student volunteers will read selections from “Shuffle and Breakdown” and other poems and open up discussion about the texts. This is not a traditional poetry reading, but a fun, interactive, and informal evening with one of Seattle’s most popular poets and one of the UW’s most beloved English teachers. Come hang out with Cody and company next Wednesday evening at the HUB!
