It’s three poets for the price of free.

Three local published poets will come to the Eagle Harbor Book Company at 157 Winslow Way, Bainbridge Island at 3 p.m., March 16.

Joannie Stangeland, Annette Spaulding-Convy and Jenifer Browne Lawrence will read their work and host a conversation with fellow poetry enthusiasts.

Stangeland has been featured in various poetry anthologies. She has also published two books, “Into the Rumored Spring” (2011) and the recently released “In Both Hands.”

A Washington State alumnus, Lawrence won the 2011 James Hearst Poetry Prize. She has published one book of poetry, 2006’s “One Hundred Steps from Shore.”

Spaulding-Convy is a former Roman Catholic nun, teaching Latin, English and Theology in a San Francisco Catholic high school. Today, she is married with children. Her 2012 book, “In Broken Latin,” traverses her experience as a nun. She was a finalist for the Miller Williams Poetry Prize in 2012, and her 2006 chapbook, “In the Convent We Become Clouds,” won the Floating Bridge Press Chapbook Award and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

Spaulding-Convy also coedited an eBook, “Fire On Her Tongue: An eBook Anthology of Contemporary Women’s Poetry.”
