*The Milwaukie Poetry Series Fifth Season!

A reading by Laura Winter

The Pond House in Milwaukie, 2215 SE Harrison
Adjacent to the Ledding Library*

The Milwaukie Poetry Series Committee and the Ledding Library of 
Milwaukie are delighted to continue the Fifth Season of the Milwaukie 
Poetry Series with a reading by Laura Winter. Thank you all for your 

This will take place on Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 7 PM in the Pond 
House adjacent to the Ledding Library, 2215 SE Harrison, Milwaukie, OR.

Laura Winter’s most recent book of poetry, _Coming Here to be Alone_, is 
a bilingual English – German edition which focuses on the High Desert 
and Great Basin. The western landscape with all its hoo doos, headlands, 
basin and range, whitewater and rain are the foundation from which she 
works. Her love for improvised music also informs how she approaches 
language. Laura has performed with jazz musicians and improvisers in the 
US and Europe.

Her work has been widely published, translated and set to music for an 
art song series. She currently publishes the occasional TAKE OUT, a 
bag-a-zine of art, writing and music that features powerful voices from 
around the globe. She recently completed a residency with Playa at 
Summer Lake, Oregon.

The Pond House in Milwaukie is a delightful setting and easy to reach. 
It is located on SE 21st and Harrison in Milwaukie. Turn at the light on 
SE 21st and McLoughlin and go four blocks east on Harrison.

We want to thank the City of Milwaukie for its generous support which 
makes the Series possible. For information about the readings, please 
contact the Series Coordinator Tom Hogan at 503-819-8367 or
