Lewis & Clark to present Stafford Centennial celebration

Lewis & Clark College and Literary Arts will present a special William Stafford Centennial Celebration Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Newmark Theatre. The event will feature Li-Young Lee and Ted Kooser with appearances by Kim Stafford and Paulann Petersen.

William Stafford, Oregon’s most renowned poet, was a prolific writer who published more than 70 volumes of poetry, including the National Book Award-winner “Traveling Through the Dark.” He served as Oregon’s poet laureate for 15 years and taught at Lewis & Clark College for more than 30.

This event celebrates the life and work of a writer whose influence is still felt today. The evening will include readings from nationally known poets and local authors, as well as archival footage.

Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased online at portland5.com.
