Free and Open to the Public
Join Portland State at the annual celebration of the life and poetry of the late William Stafford, Oregon's poet laureate. Several poets will be reading their favorite Stafford poems plus one or two of their own. Readers will include Professor Emeritus Shelley Reece, Professor John Beer, Portland State MFA graduate students, and a very special guest, Oregon poet laureate Paulann Petersen. There will be an open microphone for your favorite Stafford poem and one of your own poems. Refreshments will be served at the reading.
