Thursday, April 11, 2019
Oregon Poet Laureate Kim Stafford reads.
Kim Stafford has shaped his works around the notion of poetry as a luxury that could save your life--perhaps a little at a time--by making your days more buoyant, filled with curiosity and insight, and emotionally rich.
Stafford will read from individual poems that seek connection with the self, other people, and the Earth.
Kim Stafford, the son of poet William Stafford, received his Ph.D. in medieval literature from the University of Oregon. Since 1979, he has taught writing at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. In July 2018, he was appointed Oregon's Poet Laureate.
