Poetry Moves: A Celebration of Poetry
In its fifth year of bringing moments of joy, inspiration, or reflection to thousands of bus riders, C-Tran and Artstra invite the public to join in a celebration of poetry during National Poetry Month. Artstra’s Poetry Moves program displays poems from local and regional poets in every C-Tran bus, refreshed with new poems every six-months.
The Sunday, April 26 celebration will be held in the Columbia Room of the Vancouver Community Library located at 901 C Street from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and will offer readings from the adult poets whose work currently appears on C-Tran buses as well as student poets whose poems appeared on the buses during the prior six month season of Poetry Moves. ‘Retired’ poem bus placards, suitable for framing, will be available for sale for $10 each as a fundraiser for the program.
The current Season 9 poems were selected by juror and Auburn Washington Poet Laureate Susan Landgraf. The Season 8 poems were selected from K-12 student poets in Clark County.
Free and open to the public.
