"Singer Come from Afar" with Kim Stafford (Virtual Event)
Kim Stafford's latest poetry and writings collection, “Singer Come from Afar” considers war and peace, pandemic struggles, Earth’s imperatives, and forging kinship. Readers have called the Singer Come from Afar “a deep well of gratitude,” “a collection of bright wings and wild songs,” and “a big-hearted book.” Stafford views the writing and sharing of poetry as an essential act of testimony for the healing of the world. May this book be the hidden spring you seek. This event is part of the Nature of Writing Series run in partnership with the North Cascades Institute.
