Salem Poetry Project, June 3, with Lois Rosen and Jane Bailey
Jun 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Salem Poetry Project
Thursday, June 3
7:00 pm (Oregon time)
Lois Rosen and Jane Bailey

The Peregrine Poets were founded by Salem writers Lois Rosen and Jane Bailey. The name comes from the peregrinations of Peregrine falcons because, for most of their 23-year history, they traveled to meetings at each other’s Mid-Valley homes. They hope to gather at the IKE Box when that becomes possible.

The Salem Poetry Project continues virtually. Each week will present a featured reader followed by the Infamous Open Mic: 3 poems or five minutes whichever is first. Featured reader begins at 7:00 and the open mic will directly follow. For more information contact Marc Janssen at the Salem Poetry Project facebook page.

This is a virtual event on zoom here https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81221681959?pwd=V3VySkxsWXhBWFcyb1p5ekxFUk4zZz09 #success.

Her most recent publications are Life Revised (Cirque Press, 2020) and Reverberations from Fukushima: 50 Japanese Poets Speak Out, 2nd edition (Parkdale Press, 2021).
