January 22, 2017 - William Stafford Birthday Party!
Join us on Sunday, January 22nd, to celebrate the birth of William Stafford (born 17 January 1914) as we toast our favorite Oregon Poet Laureate and long-time FOR Member. Stafford's poems can inspire us all as we slip into the sure-to-be turbulent year of 2017! So let us draw deeply into memories of this courageous man of peace and the written word. Several local poets are invited to join us - Paulann Petersen, Tim Barnes and Kim Stafford.
Arts and crafts, music, poetry reading, children's story time and guest speakers. Join us from 2:36pm...Birthday cake, tea & coffee, concluding at 4:11pm.
