We are very excited to announce the writer-in-residence in the Minnesota Historical Society Library! In collaboration with Coffee House Press’s exciting project Writers and Readers Library Residency Program, we will be hosting poet Chris Martin through the month of October. The goal of the project is to have new works created in response to working with our unique historical and cultural Collections, either particular pieces or through researching broader themes. One of the goals is to show libraries as creative spaces in addition to reference places. Chris is particularly interested in stories of American Indians, explorers, forgotten literature, and the idea of naming.
Learn more about the project and follow Chris’s progress at the Coffee House Press: In the Stacks blog.
And join us for a public presentation and conversation about his work and experience while here on Tuesday, November 12th at 7pm in the Library! It’s free and open to the public.
