Oregon's Poet Laureate

We are honored to be hosting Oregon’s Poet Laureate, Paulann Petersen, as she reads from her new chapbook, Shimmer and Drone. This new book collects thirteen of Ms. Petersen’s India poems into a beautiful hand-assembled chapbook created by book designer Beth Campbell Ford. Dedicated to Petersen’s Indian family, these poems convey the unity of the spiritual and the sensual that characterizes India’s culture. Filled with rich visuals and embellishments, each copy is hand-sewn, numbered, and sleeved in a title-plated envelope.
