What do you get when you combine poetry, dance, visual arts and science, add three top local writers and present it all in a state-of-the-art theater?
This month, the Delta Literary Arts Society (DLAS) launches its new literary event, InkWellTold, a bimonthly conversational reading series at the new North Delta Center for the Arts (11425 84th Ave.).
“This month’s topic is ‘Writing Beyond the Page,'” local poet and DLAS founding member Barbara Baydala said in a press release. “We are thrilled to feature two writers who have extended their words beyond the two-dimensional page to include dance, song and visual art.”
In addition to being hosted by Baydala, the inaugural InkWellTold event will feature award-winning dancer, poet and educator Celeste Nazeli Snowber and experimental writer Winston Le, as well as photographs of the work of botanical artist Katrina Vera Wong.
“This is the most interactive and electrifying reading series around, with audiences encouraged to ask questions and interact with the host and featured writers,” said DLAS President Angela Rebrec, in a press release.
InkWellTold will begin Saturday, March 26 from 7-9 p.m. Entry to the gate is free.
