Join the Friends of Hannon Library for their 21st Annual William Stafford Poetry Celebration:

January 11, 2018
7 pm–9 pm
Meese Room, Hannon Library (SOU Campus)

Featured poets will present readings, followed by an open mic session where audience members are invited to read a William Stafford poem of their choice. This year’s featured poets include Charlotte Abernathy, Gary Lark, Barret O’Brien, Manya Orescan, Marisa Petersen, and Rabbi David Zaslow.

This celebration is held every year to commemorate the birthday of the late Oregon Poet Laureate, William Stafford. A prolific writer, Stafford’s work is often associated with inspirations from nature, family, and the poet’s pacifist views as a conscientious objector during World War II.

As part of the Friends of Hannon Library Speaker Series, this event is free and open to the public. Attendees can get free campus parking for this event by visiting any campus parking meter and using this code: FHL0111
