David Lee Returns to the Grand County Library
Oct 10, 2017, 7:00 pm
Former Utah Poet Laureate David Lee returns to the Grand County Library. This event is free and open to the public.
David Lee was named Utah’s first Poet Laureate in 1997, serving in this capacity until 2002 at which point he received a Commendation Award in the Utah House of Representatives. He has been honored with grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities and has received both the Mountains & Plains Booksellers Award in Poetry and the Western States Book Award in Poetry. In 1999, his collection News From Down to the Café was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, a testament to the wide national interest in his work. Dave has been chosen as one of Utah’s top twelve writers of all time by the Utah Endowment for the Humanities, and has been honored with the Utah Governor’s Award for lifetime achievement in the arts. In 2001, he was chosen as a finalist for United States Poet Laureate. Dave taught at Southern Utah University and is currently retired.
This event is made possible with support from Utah Humanities and the Grand County Library.
