Today (sadly) is the LAST day of the beloved Seattle City Council's Words' Worth Poetry Program. Council member Nick Licata, who started it, is retiring and poets who read as part of the program will show up to read the Last Line of the last poem they read when it was their turn. It should be an eclectic reading, a bit mad perhaps, but above all full of heart for everything that Council member Licata has done for the arts, and poetry in particular here in Seattle. 

Reading/Celebration: City Council Chambers at 2:00 sharp.
Follow it on the city channel: http://www.seattlechannel.org/councilLive OR read the composite Last Line poem -- and all of the poems read over the thirteen years of the program at http://www.seattle.gov/council/licata/poetword.htm

Read more about it from Sierra Nelson who is this terms Words' Worth's Curator and has organized the reading:
