Event Description

The Hugo Literary Series presents new writing and songs from a theme, or writing prompt, commissioned by Hugo House. Award-winning poet Jericho Brown; critically acclaimed writer Porochista Khakpour; and Seattle-based poet, performer, and one-half of the Vis-à-Vis Society, Rachel Kessler, plus a musician to be announced, will present new and original work on the theme of “Area Protected by Neighborhood Watch.” The 2017-2018 Hugo Literary Series coincides with our move to a new and permanent home on the same site where we first opened our doors over 20 years ago. In this same spirit of development and growth, we’ve commissioned new work on themes of real estate—from the pragmatic issues of property value to the more nebulous idea of place.
