Saturday Seattle Community Event Features Iraq Vet and Poet Brian Turner

Received this invite from a member of Soldier's Heart-Seattle:

On May 5, 2007, the Voices in Wartime education project is sponsoring a poetry reading by Iraq veteran Brian Turner, author of the collection “Here, Bullet”, some very powerful poems! [Read more on Turner and other OEF/OIF vet artists.]

When: Saturday, May 05, 2007, 7 p.m.
Where: Seattle Town Hall, 119 Eighth Ave., Seattle, WA 98101
Tickets: $15.00 at Brown Paper Tickets
Information: 206-632-7587

As part of the event we’ll have a “fishbowl” on stage with:

• Brian Turner
• Voices in Wartime leader Andy Himes
• Poet Emily Warn
• John Roth, a young Iraq war veteran and writer
• A Seattle city council member
• Local community college students
• A young Laotian refugee

The idea is that these folks will have an open discussion of how war has affected them, and the audience can question them freely in a give-and-take atmosphere. Our hope is that this kind of sharing of powerful emotions around war will spark more community involvement.

Five words: Wish I could be there. For more information download a flyer, or visit the event page. A big ^5 to the event organizers!
