Description:
A Reading with Montana’s Poet Laureate, Lowell Jaeger
SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 2019
7PM

At Jaeger's readings, expect humor, expect serious reflection, expect to examine the "human condition" in all its marvelous complexity. He enjoys interacting with audiences. He enjoys sharing the stage with other Montana poets. In between reading from his own work, he enjoys reciting from memory the poems of Robert Frost, Donald Hall, Richard Wilbur, and others. Let's light up the evening with the splendid magic of the spoken word!

Lowell Jaeger (Montana Poet Laureate 2017-2019) is founding editor of Many Voices Press and recently edited New Poets of the American West, an anthology of poets from eleven western states. Lowell has taught writing classes at numerous conferences and workshops and is currently Professor of English/Creative Writing at Flathead Valley Community College (Kalispell, Montana), where he also serves as Humanities Division Chair. He is a graduate of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, winner of the Grolier Poetry Peace Prize, and recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Montana Arts Council. Lowell was awarded the Montana Governor’s Humanities Award for his work in promoting civil civic discourse. He is the author of eight collections of poems, the most recent of which are Or Maybe I Drift Off Alone (Shabda Press 2016) and Earth-blood & Star-shine (Shabda Press 2018)

ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL SUPPORT IS PROVIDED BY HUMANITIES MONTANA AND THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES.
