Pay tribute to a poet

Local poets honor Oregon's late poet laureate William Stafford by reading his works and their own at Southern Oregon University.

The reading will be at 7 p.m. in the Meese Room of the Hannon Library on the Southern Oregon University Campus, 1250 Siskiyou Blvd., Ashland. Free parking will be available in the lot behind the library.

Poets Jeannette Cappella, Bruce Barton, Richard Lehnert, Liz Robinson and Jay Schroeder will read a Stafford poem along with one of their own. Ashland composer Todd Barton will present a recording of his composition, "The Dream of Now," inspired by Stafford's poetry. Audience members are invited to read their favorite Stafford poems.

The event is free. Call 541-552-6835 for additional information.
