Passwords: Naomi Shihab Nye & Kim Stafford on William Stafford

Event Type: Poetry Reading
Event Date and Time:
2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Description: William Stafford (1914–1993) is the author of more than 50 books; his first poetry collection, Traveling Through the Dark (1962), won the 1963 National Book Award for Poetry. A conscientious objector during World War II and avid ecologist, Stafford spent most of his teaching career at Lewis & Clark College in Oregon. With his deceptively simple style and reverence for the natural world, he is considered the Robert Frost of the American west. In celebration of his centennial, poets Naomi Shihab Nye and Kim Stafford (the poet’s son) talk about their relationship with this beloved poet and his remarkable body of work.
