April is National Poetry Month
Kathleen Willard: Speaking for the Wild
Excerpts from “Cirque & Sky”
Thursday, April 6, 5:30 – 7 pm
Cirque & Sky, a series of pastorals and anti-pastorals, celebrates both the beauty and exploitation of the Colorado landscape. As a poet, teacher, and lifelong advocate for the environment, Kathleen Willard feels the slow unravelling of the Rocky Mountain West. Her poetry continues her engagement with the natural world and she hopes to give voice for what is wild. Cirque & Sky won the Middle Creek Press Fledge Poetry Chapbook Award. Kathleen Willard is known as a poetry advocate and organizer of poetry readings at Bas Bleu Theatre in Fort Collins and for Women Write the Rockies at Wolverine Letterpress.
