Grif­fin Bay Book­store & The San Juan Island Library are cel­e­brat­ing Nation­al Poet­ry Month with Wash­ing­ton State Poet Lau­re­ate Tod Mar­shall on Sat­ur­day, April 1st, 7:00 pm at the Library.

Tod Mar­shall, a poet and pro­fes­sor at Gon­za­ga Uni­ver­si­ty, is the author most recent­ly of Bugle (2014), which won the Wash­ing­ton State Book Award in 2015. He is also the author of two pre­vi­ous col­lec­tions, Dare Say (2002) and The Tan­gled Line (2009), and a col­lec­tion of inter­views with con­tem­po­rary poets, Range of the Pos­si­ble (2002). He suc­ceeds poets Eliz­a­beth Austen (2014–2016)

The Wash­ing­ton State Poet Lau­re­ate serves to build aware­ness and appre­ci­a­tion of poet­ry — includ­ing the state’s lega­cy of poet­ry — through pub­lic read­ings, work­shops, lec­tures, and pre­sen­ta­tions in geo­graph­i­cal­ly diverse areas of the state. The appoint­ed poet lau­re­ate serves a two-year term.
