Join us at Village Books for our annual poetry reading celebrating Oregon's late poet laureate, William Stafford. This year would be Stafford’s centennial, and we invite the community to read their favorite Stafford poems at this event. A number of new collections will be available for sale at the event, which will be emceed by Bellingham Poet Jim Bertolino.
 
One of the best-known and loved American poets, Stafford served as Poetry Consultant to the Library of Congress, received the National Book Award for Traveling Through the Dark, and taught for many years at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. He grew up in Kansas, was a conscientious objector during World War II, and was widely admired for his generosity. He mentored countless writers around the world.
