Letters, Nov. 1

Bring speakers here

After a two-year hiatus, Chautauqua Poets & Writers has obtained not-for-profit status and launched a Kickstarter funding campaign to bring U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo and award-winning journalist Timothy Egan to the Rogue Valley in 2020.

With nearly a 20-year history of bringing literary giants to Southern Oregon for public readings and student workshops, the nonprofit is proud to return to the Rogue Valley with this exciting new program, but can do so only with the success of their online fundraising campaign.

Harjo, a Creek Indian and student of First Nation history, will share her poetry at an April 20, 2020 event in Medford, and will also meet with local high school students in two small group chats.

Chautauqua’s successful Kickstarter campaign will also bring Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Timothy Egan to Medford in October of 2020. Egan is a New York Times contributing op-ed writer who covers the environment, the American West and politics.

Pledge rewards include advanced tickets, exclusive opportunities and local student sponsorship. Generous giving keeps the literary arts alive and thriving in Southern Oregon, and most importantly, brings this unique opportunity to students in our region.

Participate today at KickstartCW.com.
