@ Conference Room B
Open mic night is an outlet for local poets to share their work with other poets and sometimes the general public. We have a round robin format, each poet reads one poem each round, (please shorter works) until our time is up. There are a number of talented poets locally writing in a variety of styles and it is always an interesting and enjoyable evening.

Photographer John Marshall will lead a discussion on the past philosophies and future policies regarding forest fire management in Eastern Washington. Lightning strikes and Native Americans historically ignited many small fires, resulting in open forests with a rich mosaic of wildlife habitats. As Europeans settled the area, many began to argue for the vigilant prevention of wildfires. For half a century, the U.S. Forest Service battled all fires and invented Smokey Bear, a character that spread the discredited notion that all fire is bad. Now fires are larger and hotter as forests have grown into living tinderboxes. All of Eastern Washington’s vulnerable forests will inevitably burn. The question for us is: How do we want them to burn?
