LANESBORO, Minn. – Lanesboro Arts Center will host poet Morgan Grayce Willow for a poetry reading at the Gallery on Saturday, November 9, 2013 at 1 p.m. The artist will read poems from her new collection of poetry, Dodge & Scramble, which includes poems in the barn’s voice she worked on while in Lanesboro for an Artist Residency in 2008. The event is free and open to the public.

Morgan Grayce Willow will offer a sneak preview of her poems onstage at the “Over the Back Fence” Radio Show on Friday, November 8, 2013. The show is at 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre; tickets are $7 adult / $4 student. Of Dodge & Scramble, Mary Swander, Poet Laureate of Iowa, gives praise. “What a delight to discover Morgan Grayce Willow’s new book “Dodge & Scramble.” Here’s a poet who dares to engage the reader in a world of farming and the land, then pushes the experience to the higher level of transformative myth. Every poem, every page demonstrates the thoughtfulness and grace of this insightful poet.”

Morgan Grayce Willow grew up on a family farm in Mitchell County, Iowa, originally settled by her great grandfather in the 1880s. Her poetry collections include Between and Silk: Meditations on T’ai-Chi Ch’uan. She published her first chapbook, Spinnerets, in 1987. In 2005, Finishing Line Press selected Arpeggio of Appetite for its New Women’s Voices Series. In between, Morgan’s poetry and prose have appeared in a wide variety of journals such as Third Coast, The Barefoot Muse, Out of Line, 100 Words, the Bloomsbury Review, and Negative Capability. Her writing, in prose as well as poetry, has garnered awards from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the McKnight Foundation, the Jerome Foundation, and the Witter Bynner Foundation. Her work has also been featured in a number of artistic collaborations, including handmade art books, broadsides, and a poetry/dance video project. A former sign language interpreter, Morgan published Crossing that Bridge, a guide for making literary events accessible to deaf audiences. She lives in Minneapolis and teaches at Minneapolis Community & Technical College, as well as The Loft Literary Center.

In Lanesboro, Minn., the Lanesboro Arts Center Gallery is located at 103 Parkway Ave N; the St. Mane Theatre is located at 206 Parkway Ave N. Lanesboro Arts Center’s mission is to serve as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development in providing diverse a .....
