Hear poet Trevor Williams read a selection of his works, groove on open-mic readings, who knows, maybe defy your own knocking knees and get up there and read your own stuff. Sounds great, right?

But to celebrate all that poetry and good cheer, you’ll have to be there from 7 to 9 p.m., Monday, Jan. 6, 2020, in the banquet room of the Rainbow Café at 112 East Main St. in downtown Auburn.

Hindsight is 2020, and those of you out there who didn’t attend nearly enough poetry readings in 2019 — and you know who you are — set your resolve to join them, every Monday, all year long, courtesy of the Rainbow Cafe, the Striped Water Poets, The NorthWest Renaissance, The Auburn Arts Commission, the City of Auburn, King County 4culture and all of the wonderful open-mic participants.
