Library of Things

The Sisters Library features 8,300 square feet of space, all housed in an exterior design that includes a partial wraparound porch with the Western appearance for which Sisters is famous. Though the building itself was constructed in 2005, Sisters has a tradition of library service that goes back decades.

In addition to a robust selection of books, music, and DVDs, the library also offers public computers as well as children’s story times and adult programming in the community meeting room. The interior design features vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace that creates a cozy reading area. Rotating art and quilt exhibitions reflect the talent of the local community. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    12:00 PM - Saturday - Meeting Room * Registration Required

    Participants will craft procedural poetry around given constraints and prompts.

    Have you ever tried to write a poem without using the letter "e"? What if you were challenged to write a poem using only the prepositional phrases from an email you wrote exactly one week ago?

    Whether we call it procedural poetry, investigative poetry, or a poetics of inventory, poetry created through procedures, processes, or formulas, shape the contemporary poetry landscape. This workshop capitalizes on some of the most cutting-edge poetic techniques of today by looking back to exciting moments in the literary 20th century. Participants will learn how procedural poetry developed in American literary history and, in response, will craft their own procedural poetry around given constraints and prompts. Hailing from the northernmost region of Illinois, Jenna is now a professor at OSU-Cascades. At both the University of Kentucky, and at Illinois State University where she completed her MA in 2010, Jenna taught first-year writing, creative writing, and literature. At the University of Kentucky she was awarded the College of Arts and Sciences Certificate for Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award in 2014, and in 2015, she received the inaugural Kentucky Writers Fellowship for Innovative Poetry from Louisville's Baltic Writers Residency. She is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships from the Acorn Equality Fund for LGBT researchers, the University of Kentucky Women's Club, and the Lexington Herald-Leader.

    Jenna's teaching and research interests reside at the crossroads of writing pedagogy, environment, and creativity. She is interested in the linkages between composition pedagogy and creative writing pedagogy in space and place, often deploying her background in creative writing in the first-year writing classroom as a means of invention, research, and writing practice.

    12:00 PM - Tuesday - Meeting Room

    Mark Kroos plays 2 guitar necks at the same time.

    Originally from Lansing, MI but currently based in Charlotte, NC he is one of the only people in the world touring his trade. His primarily instrumental style is characterized by open harmonies, polyphonic textures, incredible tapping technique, and is as entertaining to watch as it is to listen to. Live performances burst with energy and magnetism not typical of solo guitar music. Drawing influence from folk, Celtic, indie, and even punk rock artists as well as great guitarists such as Michael Hedges, Tommy Emmanuel and Leo Kottke, Mark Kroos has developed his own edge to the acoustic guitar.
