22nd Annual William Stafford Poetry Celebration

Join the Friends of Hannon Library for their 22nd Annual William Stafford Poetry Celebration:

January 10, 2019

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 Diana Morley, Jim Flint, Lisa Baldwin, Philip Newton, Richard Lehnert, and Alma Rosa Alvarez.

This celebration is held every year to commemorate the birthday of the late Oregon Poet Laureate, William Stafford. A prolific writer, Stafford was known for his work inspired by nature, family, and the poet’s pacifist views as a conscientious objector during World War II.
