The poems, which deal with Medford's history, ambiance, institutions, remembrances, and community life, will be collected in a book, "OPA Poets Write about Medford," which will be available for purchase at the reading. Former Oregon Poet Laureate Lawson Fusao Inada, a Medford resident, will officiate.

It discusses the natural wonder's geology, history, plant and animal life, as well as ongoing research at the park. Following the discussion, Marsha McCabe, chief of interpretation and cultural resources for Crater Lake National Park, will answer questions.
