The Poetry in Translation reading series showcases the literary traditions of Seattle’s immigrant and Native communities by sharing these groups’ poetry and song in their original languages and in their equivalent English translation. This quarterly series aims to inspire and broaden the city’s literary scene. It is a celebration of the poetries, literary traditions and cultural contributions these communities make toward Seattle’s quality of life.

This episode will feature multilingual readings by poets alongside video poem screenings.
