The Milwaukie Poetry Series Committee and the Ledding Library of Milwaukie
are delighted to continue the 14th season of the Mlwaukie Poetry Series with a reading
by Claudia F. Saleeby Savage. We hope you are all safe and well in this difficult time of
the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to it we will not be holding the 14th season of the Milwaukie
Poetry Series readings in person. They will be held virtually.
Her reading was originally scheduled on June 10, 2020, but the Pandemic intervened
and the reading needed to be rescheduled. It will now be livestreamed on April 14, 2021
on the Ledding Library YouTube Channel. You can register for this event with Tom Hogan
at [email protected] It will then be available for viewing on demand on the
Ledding Library YouTube Channel and on DVD through the library.
Claudia F. Saleeby Savage’s work appears in print, onstage, and in galleries and e
xplores multidisciplinary collaboration and diaspora. She is part of the performance
duo Thick in the Throat, Honey. Her latest collection of poetry is Bruising Continents
(Spuyten Duyvil) with recent work in BOMB , Denver Quarterly , Columbia , Nimrod ,
Water-Stone Review , and Anomaly (the interview series “Witness the Hour: Arab
American Poets Across the Diaspora”). She is a 2018-2021 Black Earth Institute
Fellow, and has received recognition from Ucross, Jentel, the Atlantic Center for the
Arts, RACC, Literary Arts, Mineral School, and Oregon State University. Her
collaboration, reductions, about motherhood and ephemerality with visual artist
Jacklyn Brickman, is forthcoming in Columbus and Detroit in 2022. Her poetics are
influenced by rabid reading, Alice Coltrane, and long hikes in drippy forests. She
teaches and lives with her husband and daughter in Portland, OR.
