Wrigley to read from, sign book at Kenworthy event

Poet Robert Wrigley will read from and sign his book “The True Account of Myself as a Bird” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, at the Kenworthy Theater, 508 South Main St., in Moscow.

In his new collection, Wrigley uses poetry to capture the conversation between human beings and our perilously threatened planet, according to a news release from BookPeople of Moscow, which is organizing the event.

Books will be available for sale and signing, and refreshments will be for sale, including wine and beer. Masks are required.

Wrigley is the author of 11 collections of poetry, including 2017's “Box,” according to the news release.

His earlier books were awarded the Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, the Poetry Center Book Award, the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Book Award and the Poets’ Prize, and he received fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. He lives in the woods near Moscow with his wife, the author Kim Barnes.
