Oregon Poet Laureate to Speak at Stayton Public Library
The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce a visit and reading with Oregon Poet Laureate Kim Stafford on Thursday, November 29, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. There will be a reception accompanying the event.

Kim Stafford is an Oregon writer and teacher who has published books about his poet father, his brother's suicide, nine books of poetry, and essays about resonant landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. He is the founding director of the Northwest Writing Institute, a zone for exploratory writing, and he co-founded the Fishtrap Writers Gathering in Wallowa County in 1987. In 2018 Gov. Kate Brown selected him as Oregon's ninth Poet Laureate to travel the state witnessing for poetry, succeeding Elizabeth Woody. He views the practice of writing as a fundamental doorway to happiness and discovery, and travels to witness for this process.

This event is sponsored by the Stayton Friends of the Library and “Salem for All!” Salem for All strives to be a resource valuable and meaningful experiences for members of the Salem community and providing free or low cost tickets to cultural events to people of low incomes.
