Celebrate National Poetry Month by joining your library for a poetry reading featuring past Wisconsin Poet Laureate and Mahnomen High School graduate Kimberly Blaeser.

Celebrate National Poetry Month by joining your library for a poetry reading featuring past Wisconsin Poet Laureate and Mahnomen High School graduate Kimberly Blaeser. Blaeser will read from her Ancient Light collection of poetry, accompanied by a visual photography slideshow, which invokes an ancient belonging and the voice of the deep relatedness the poet experiences in the watery regions of Minnesota. A book signing will follow the presentation.


Kimberly Blaeser is a member of the White Earth Nation, founding director of Indigenous Nations Poets, the author of six poetry collections and a photographer. The program is offered free-of-charge thanks in part to funding from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
