Steamboard Mountain Reading Series is excited to host Star Coulbrooke and Shanan Ballam at the K-2 Gallery.

Star Coulbrooke is the inaugural poet laureate of Logan City, Utah. She was born in Preston, Idaho on February 22, 1951, to a farm family with acreage along the Bear River. She quit high school to marry a Logan boy, completed her GED in 1986, and enrolled at Utah State University where she earned a BA in Literary Studies (1996) and an MA in American Studies/Folklore (1998). She has lived in Smithfield for twenty-eight years.

Her new poetry collection Inside the Animal: The Collected Red Riding Hood Poems, a semi-finalist for the 2017 Trio House Press Louise Bogan Award and a finalist for the 2017 Hillary Gravendyk Prize Poetry Book Competition from Inlandia Press, was published by Main Street Rag in June 2019.
