Oregon’s poet laureate, Elizabeth Woody, joins us for the grand re-opening of the Oregon Poetry Collection: Saturday September 30th, 2:00 PM at the Knight Library.
Come celebrate Oregon’s poetry, contemporary, historical, and everlasting. Speakers will include our very own David Hedges, the University of Oregon’s John Witte, local luminary Tim Whitsel, the University slam team’s Maxine David, and laureate Woody. There will be a special display of books by notable Oregon poets, and refreshments will be served.
Reminder: OPA is still seeking board members: we have three seats to fill. If you are interested in public service, non-profit volunteer work, or have a desire to help shape the course of poetry in Oregon, this could be for you. Elections will be held at the conference: more information can be found under WHO WE ARE > Executive Board.
Get the registration form and conference schedule here. Don’t forget to bring books to donate to the Oregon Poetry Collection– come to the opening Friday afternoon at the library, or drop them off during the conference, either way works!
