The brilliance of Seattle’s Liner Notes continues with all new poems inspired by The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill!  I saw July’s show, featuring poems inspired by Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, and I was impressed with the beauty and insight of those pieces   Ela Barton, the show’s producer, never fails to bring together an inspiring show, and I’m so excited and honored to be a part of this.

Here’s the lineup:

Side A
Lost ones- Casey Tonnelly
Ex-Factor-Maya Hersh
