Robacker Runs 'Poetry Station' at King's Fundraiser 06/13

June 13 * 11 am - 4 pm. Artist Craft Fair!

Tacoma Is For Lovers - Fundraiser for KING'S Books - Tacoma, WA
Sunday, June 13.

TIFL presents a special Artist Craft Fair Fundraiser!

A multitude of local artists will have tables featuring arts, crafts, jewelry, letterpress prints, t-shirts, poetry and more!

Also, as Tacoma's new Poet Laureate I will be hosting a 'poetry station' at the event. For a small donation to benefit Kings, attendees can have a personal hand-written poem created just for them by me on the spot - Signed, Dated and Personalized! Other local Tacoma poets will be joining me during the day to help write poems for folks who donate to support Kings Books!

A raffle and silent auction further assure you will go home with wicked art if you make a benevolent contribution. Your purchases help support artists in Tacoma! Part of the proceeds also go to King's Books to help finance changes needed to keep the business viable! Participating artists include Maggie Roberts, Mirka Hokkanen, Chandler O'Leary, Miranda Pollitz, Laurie Cinotto, Ryan Loiselle & Rochelle Wells, Lisa Hasegawa, Jessica Bender, Stella Crumpton, Connie DeBruler, Lindsey Barnes, Oliver Doriss, and Kelsey Parkhurst.

Tacoma Is For Lovers is a community-based organization that annually produces two Artist Craft Fairs and monthly Craft Nights in order to promote the visibility of local artists and encourages reuse, intentionality, sustainability and high craft.
