Celebrating William Stafford’s Poetry & Words

This will be a short reading of poems and aphorisms from the writer, teacher, and pacifist William Stafford (1914–1993). He and his wife, Dorothy (1916–2013), have had a lasting impact on artists and activists who knew them personally or who have known them through their words. Friends of the Staffords host these commemorative readings each year—in their native Oregon, around the world, and now in New York City.
