The evening will raise funds to support Pongo’s poetry programming, and feature a poetry reading from Ross Gay, the voices of the youth writers it serves, and stories of impact from across its twenty-seven-year history.
Immediately prior to the celebration, Pongo will host a 30-minute virtual reception and Q&A with guest of honor, Ross Gay. The virtual reception will be streamed live on YouTube from 6:30-7pm PST. Ticket purchasers will have the opportunity to hear directly from Ross Gay about his writing and ask questions about his work." (Promo Copy)
