William Stafford (1914-1994) committed himself to a poetic stance of neutrality and susceptibility to the moment. He won the National Book Award, the Shelley Memorial Award, and a Guggenheim award, among others. Robert Bly has published 12 books of poetry and has brought the poetry of many other cultures into English. He is also known as a pioneer of the “men’s movement.”

American Sign Language interpreter will be present.
