When he’s not playing trumpet in the Spokane Symphony or teaching music at Gonzaga, Chris Cook is writing deftly crafted poetry. Some might also know him as the host of Auntie’s Bookstore’s 3 Minute Mic open poetry readings on First Fridays. Cook will read from his latest poetry collection, Damn Good Cookie, and likely dazzle you with pieces from his early works, which have been published widely and recited during his appearances at national and international poetry competitions.
