William Stafford 100th Birthday Celebration reading and tribute, Joe Beans Coffeeshop, La Grande.
Anyone interested in Stafford’s work is encouraged to attend and bring along your favorite Stafford poems to share or simply enjoy listening to local readers sharing their favorites. Local readers scheduled to read include: David Axelrod, James Benton, Nancy Knowles, Richard Mack, Thomas Madden, David Memmott, George Venn and Donald Wolff.
The event is free to the public. Donations will be accepted.
The Third Wednesday Roundhouse Reading Series, hosted by Joe Beans, is made possible in part due to support from Union County Cultural Coalition, Cook Memorial Library and Libraries of Eastern Oregon. Statewide Stafford reading events have been organized by Friends of William Stafford.
Next month we are planning with Ars Poetica Program a reading with creative writing students from Eastern Oregon University. This event will also be a fundraiser for the Union County Food Bank. Our March reading is still being planned. Then Walla Walla novelist, Scott Elliott, will be reading on April 16 from his new novel, Temple Grove (University of Washington, 2013).
See you at Joe Beans.
