The Kiva Koffeehouse Welcomes David Lee
Oct 5, 2017, 6:00 pm
Join former Utah Poet Laureate, David Lee, at the Kiva Koffeehouse in Escalante for the kickoff of the Cliff Notes Writing Conference. This event is free and open to the public.
David Lee is the Cliff Notes Writing Conference. He joins us each year to try new work out on Boulder or to share new publications. Last year his newest book Bluebonnets, Firewheels and Brown-eyed Susans or Poems New and Used from the Bandera Rag and Bone Shop made its first appearance at Cliff Notes Writing Conference. Who knows what this year will bring. We do know you will hear what Dave is up to in Boulder first. Dave assists in identifying and inviting faculty each year for the Cliff Notes Writing Conference and making sure participants have completed our yearly homework. Dave 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 Boulder Heritage Foundation.
