This event features two Oregon poets whose knowledge and love of the natural world, and concern for its future, infuses their poetry. Their readings will be accompanied by projected images from the work of a landscape photographer who shares that love and concern.
Amy Minato is author of two poetry collections, Hermit Thrush, (Inkwater Press, 2016) and The Wider Lens (Ice River Press, 2004), and a memoir, Siesta Lane, (Skyhorse Press, 2009). She holds an MFA in Creative Writing and an MS in Environmental Studies from the University of Oregon and has received a Literary Arts Fellowship for her poetry and a Walden Residency for her prose. She teaches writing through Literary Arts, Multnomah Art Center, Fishtrap, and Breitenbush Retreat Center, and sustainable living education at Portland State University. Amy lives with her husband and two children in Portland, Oregon. In summers they migrate to the Wallowa Mountains to skip rocks on the lake and sleep beneath skies crazy with stars.
