William Stafford--Happy Birthday!--Readings

January is the birthday month for Oregon's most famous poet, William Stafford (1914-1993).
There are readings all over the state, as well as in Kansas, California, Vermont, and Wisconsin, and in Sweden, Japan, Scotland, Malaysia, and Mexico.

The format is that each "featured" reader reads one poem by Stafford, one by him/herself. Then it opens up, and anyone in the audience can get up and read a poem by Stafford.

The reading at PSU is next Thursday:
