Maxine Scates and Joseph Millar

December 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

Join beloved and award-winning Oregon poets Maxine Scates and Joseph Millar for a virtual reading and discussion celebrating their latest collections.

Many poems in My Wilderness by Maxine Scates chronicle how a wooded Oregon hillside, her longtime home, has turned from a refuge into a landscape of change where trees once numerous are now threatened by storm and the presence of the humans who live among them. Grounded in the shifting borders of migrations and extinctions, plant, animal, and human, of memory and grief, My Wilderness inevitably asks us to consider not only our own mortality but also our impact on the world around us.

Dark Harvest showcases two decades of Joseph Millar’s finest poetic work, poems centered on the unseen men and women at the margins of American life. Millar’s poems don’t favor beauty over suffering, nor do they reach for knowledge over mystery—instead, his words carry forward their Whitmanic imperatives: to turn away from nothing, to be awash in contradictions.
