In 2014, Oregon Reads commemorates the centennial of Oregon’s most celebrated poet, William Stafford. The goal is to once again involve 80,000 Oregonians in Oregon Reads 2014, in communities and on campuses throughout the state.
Throughout the winter, the library offers programs in conjunction with Oregon Reads 2014. The first program is a presentation by Oregon Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen on Wednesday, January 29, at 6:00 PM in the Oak Room.
Ms. Petersen is Oregon’s 6th Poet Laureate, and will share her love of poetry. This presentation is free and open to the public, and is the kick-off for the library’s literary seminar on William Stafford.
