The Ledding Library and Milwaukie Poetry Series Committee are delighted to sponsor a William Stafford Birthday Celebration on Saturday, February 4, 2017 from 2-4 PM at the Pond House.

These celebrations are held during the year throughout Oregon and the nation in honor of poet William Stafford who taught for many years at Lewis and Clark College and was Oregon Poet Laureate from 1975 through 1989.

Our Milwaukie event will be hosted by Greg Chaimov and Tom Hogan. Our Featured Readers this year will be Paulann Petersen and Shelly Reece. They both know William Stafford and will be talking about him and reading some of his and their own work.

Please join the event and bring a poem honoring William Stafford! It’s open to all and there is an opportunity after the featured readers for everyone who wants to share a poem. You can sign up ahead of time or just come along to the event. There will be poems available to read if you did not bring one and light refreshments.

For information or to sign up for this event, please contact Tom Hogan at 503-819-8367 or or Greg Chaimov at
