Tess Gallagher and Gary Copeland Lilley will read from their original works as part of the Studium Generale series February 20 at 12:35 pm in the Peninsula College Little Theater. This event is co-sponsored by the Foothills Writers series and a book signing will follow in the Bookaneer immediately after the poetry reading.
Tess Gallagher claims many wests—the Northwest of America, the Northwest of Ireland, and a west even further to the edge, beyond the physical. These landscapes are charged with invisible energies and inhabited by the people, living and dead, who shape Gallagher’s poems and life.
Tess Gallagher is the author of 11 books of poetry, including Midnight Lantern: New and Selected Poems, Dear Ghosts, and Moon Crossing Bridge. Gallagher spends time in county Sligo, Ireland, and also in her hometown of Port Angeles, Washington.
Gary Copeland Lilley is the author of eight books of poetry, the most recent being The Bushman's Medicine Show, from Lost Horse Press (2017), and a chapbook, The Hog Killing, from Blue Horse Press (2018). He is originally from North Carolina and has lived in the Pacific Northwest the past nine years. He has received the Washington DC Commission on the Arts Fellowship for Poetry. Lilley teaches creative writing at various venues, including the Port Townsend Writers Conference, Hugo House, and the Writers’ Workshoppe. He is published in numerous anthologies and journals, including Best American Poetry 2014, Willow Springs, The Swamp, Waxwing, the Taos International Journal of Poetry, and the African American Review. He is a Cave Canem Fellow.
The event is free and open to the public.
