Celebrating the Life and Poetry of William Stafford
Around the world poetry fans celebrate the birthday of William Stafford with readings and other events. To mark the occasion we have created a special "Curated Collection" of artist books and broadsides that feature the poetry of William Stafford as well as his son Kim.
In Portland you can join the fun this Sunday, January 22 at 2:00 at Blackfish Gallery in the Pearl as they host a William Stafford Birthday Celebration poetry reading in honor of the late Oregon Poet Laureate. Join poets, musicians, and speakers; bring your favorite Stafford poem to share. Blackfish Gallery, 420 NW 9th Avenue, Portland, OR 97209.
