As part of the library’s “Know Stafford” month, retired Stafford archivist Paul Merchant will discuss “What’s In My Journal.” Merchant served as William Stafford’s archivist for decades, when Stafford was alive and after he passed away. He will explore “What’s In My Journal” both as a poem in its own right and as an essential guide to the nature of the Stafford Archives, which are located at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. He will also talk about the long task, starting 15 years ago, of preparing Stafford’s archives for the public
