Zoom Live Video Meeting
Robert Lashley

PLEASE REGISTER FOR THIS LIVE VIDEO EVENT: https://wcls.libcal.com/event/7219200
You will be emailed a link to the Zoom meeting on the day of the event. Join us for an evening of poetry with local poet, Robert Lashley. As part of a Northwest population with people from the deep South and a survivor of the Hilltop gang wars of the early 90’s, Lashley’s poetry makes sense of the multitude of voices that have surrounded him over the years. His passion joins high lyric poetry burnished by narrative structure, with a language attuned to the ear and the complexities of the human voice.
