Gary Lemons reads from Snake, 7:30pm, 10/24

The Butte College Reading Series continues this Wednesday, October 24

The James Irvine Foundation, Red Hen Press and the Literary Arts Club are proud to bring award-winning poet Gary Lemons to Butte College. Lemons will be reading from his new collection, Snake, which Jordan Harrt describes as “a mournful dirge for what has been lost, a dreaming song for what could yet remain,” at 7:30pm in the Butte College cover art, SnakeChico Center Student Lounge.

Lemons spent “years working high steel, years slip-forming concrete feed mills and grain elevators, years running a chain saw or reforesting in the high elevation timber stands and clear cuts of the Pacific Northwest” (Rattle). Those experiences, including his years on a “deadliest catch” ship in Bristol Bay, inform his work, as does his current work as a yoga instructor. In fact, he says that “writing every day can become a kind of mental yoga, a process that’s self-enriching” (Rattle).
