Wednesday, August 23, 6-7pm at Sequim Branch Library

Enjoy a poetry reading on a summer evening with Clallam County Poet Laureate, Jaiden Dokken.

Jaiden will share a selection of their poetry, and read works by other poets. Jaiden’s own work is often reflective of growing up in Sequim and experiencing life on the North Olympic Peninsula. A reception will follow the reading.

Jaiden Dokken (they/them) is a local writer, ceramicist, stamp-carver, reader, illustrator, and cidermaker. They are an Editor and Reader for Perennial Press, and have published work in Fiction International, Algorithm, Muses & Vices, SpeakEasy, Superfroot Magazine, and Pile Press. Jaiden is currently serving as Clallam County’s first Poet Laureate.

Refreshments will be provided at the Forks event by Rainforest Council for the Arts.

The Sequim event is generously funded in part by Friends of Sequim Library.
