Elliott Bay Books: New Poets of the American West - "On the Way to Mirror Lake" by Photographer and Writer, Logan Jenott
Poets reading 7:00 PM, this Thursday, September 2nd include: Kathleen Flenniken, Peter Pereira, Allen Braden, Sharon Hashimoto, Marj Manwaring, Michael Spence, and Derrick Sheffield. I think I can promise that each poet will read clearly and most importantly, quickly. Kathleen Flenniken is our organizer and she knows how to keep a reading moving. It will be a night to revel in being a northwest poet. I can't think of a better kind of poet to be ...
Celebrate the variety of western U.S. poetic voices tonight as over two dozen local and regional poet/contributors to New Poets of the American West (Many Voices Press) take turns reading from their work. The evening's emcee is anthology editor Lowell Jaegar, visiting from Kalispell, where he teaches creative writing at Flathead Valley Community College. "In New Poets of the American West we hear from Native American and first-generation immigrants, from ranchlanders and megaopolites, from poet-teachers and street-poets, and more. In fact, the West is so big, and home to such diversity that the deeper one reads in this anthology, the more voices and world views one encounters, the more textures of thought, emotion, and language one discovers, the less we may find ourselves able to speak of a single, stable something called the American West." - Brady Harrison, University of Montana.
