Mike Hickey on the radio

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Luke Burbank of KIRO radio’s Too Beautiful to Live interviewed Mike Hickey just before the election… I finally got a chance to check it out. It’s an interesting take on why the general public (via the hosts of the show) feel that poetry has gotten too abstruse for its own good—and how the Poet Populist can help return it back to regular people. Check it out here!

Poet Inauguration Sunday 1/25!

Monday, January 19th, 2009

On Sunday, January 25, Mike Hickey will be installed as the city’s 8th Poet Populist at a reading at the Central Library. The reading will feature, besides Hickey, special guest Jack Hirschman, Poet Laureate of San Francisco. Former Seattle Poet Populist Cody Walker will also read, and several of this year’s candidates, including Judith Roche, Ruth Yarrow, Mimi Allin and Chelsey Richardson will make cameos. Program founder and Seattle City Councilmember Nick Licata will give an introduction.

The reading starts at 2:00 pm, at the Central Library, 1000 - 4th Avenue between Madison and Spring streets. ADMISSION IS FREE.
