The Milwaukie Poetry Series Committee and the Ledding Library of Milwaukie are delighted to continue the Second Season of the Milwaukie Poetry Series with a reading by Michele Glazer.

This will take place on Wednesday, Oct. Nov. 12 at 7 PM in the Pond House adjacent to the Ledding Library, 2215 SE Harrison, Milwaukie, OR 97222.

Michele Glazer teaches in the English Department at Portland State University. Of her first book, It Is Hard to Look at What We Came to Think We’d Come to See (Pittsburgh), a critic wrote, “The poems in this extraordinary debut are (like its title) sinuous, refractory, highly structured, yet in a way implosive, too, their asymmetric blocks holding in balances always about to give way.” (Boston Review). The poet Sheryl St. Germain described her next book, Aggregate of Disturbances (Iowa), as “a stunning collection of meditations on language, landscape and loss.”

Her awards include fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Regional Arts & Culture Council, and the Oregon Arts Commission. She co-organized and participated in Word & Hand, two year-long collaborations between writers and visual artists that exhibited at Portland State University. She is the editor of Writers Collective, an anthology of Oregon poets.

The Pond House in Milwaukie is a delightful setting and easy to reach. It is located on SE 21st and Harrison in Milwaukie. From Portland travel south on McLoughlin Blvd. (99E) to Harrison St, the first light as you come into Milwaukie. Turn left and the Library is two blocks east.
From Oregon City, Gladstone and Oak Grove and I-205 from Salem, travel north on McLoughlin to Harrison, turn right and go two blocks east again to the Library.
From East Multnomah and Clackamas Counties, go west on Hwy. 224 to the Harrison St. Exit, turn left and go approximately ½ mile to the library.
