The Great American Poetry Crawl with Brendan Walsh

Florida-based poet and educator Brendan Walsh brings his summer poetry tour to Book People Richmond in Richmond, VA. Join him and local authors Joanna Lee and Roselyn Elliot for an evening of stirring literary work and performance.

Living Things: The Great American Poetry Crawl, sponsored by Sutra Press, is harnessing the fellowship of writing by connecting to independent literary communities up and down the East Coast. This reading tour stretches from Florida to Rhode Island; Walsh is also conducting interviews with local poets in each city, creating a video series that illustrates the reciprocal relationship between poetry and place.

Join Brendan, Joanna, Roselyn and Book People for an immersive reading in exploration of the joy, contradiction, heartache and wonder of being! This event is free and open to the public; more on the tour can be found at
