PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

Former Poet Laureate of Kansas, Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, and photographer Stephen Locke will offer a multimedia presentation Chasing Weather as a special event in the Pittsburg State University Distinguished Visiting Writers Series on Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 6:00 PM in 102 Yates Hall. The presentation is free and open to the public.

The presentation includes images and videos of wild weather matched with stirring poems drawn from Mirriam-Goldberg and Locke's newly published book, Chasing Weather: Tornadoes, Tempests, and Thunderous Skies in Word & Image. Mary Swander, Poet Laureate of Iowa, describes Chasing Weather as “a gorgeous pairing of photos and poetry! These images are at once alluring and startling, awe-inspiring and terrifying—the joining of heaven and earth. Chasing Weather unlocks the power of nature on the Great Plains—the ever changing, fascinating drama of the sky.” Catching moments of stunning beauty and surprising shifts in the sky, this combination of poetry and photography helps make the vibrant and variable world more visible to us, and shows us how to truly see where and who we are.

Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg is the 2009-2013 Poet Laureate of Kansas, and the author or editor of nineteen books, including the recently published Poem on the Range: A Poet Laureate's Love Song to Kansas; a novel, The Divorce Girl (Ice Cube Press); a non-fiction book, Needle in the Bone: How a Holocaust Survivor and Polish Resistance Fighter Beat the Odds and Found Each Other (Potomac Books); The Sky Begins At Your Feet: A Memoir on Cancer, Community & Coming Home to the Body (Ice Cube Press); and four poetry collections. She is the founder of Transformative Language Arts—a master's program in social and personal transformation through the written, spoken, and sung word—at Goddard College where she teaches. Caryn also leads community writing workshops. She lives with her family just south of Lawrence, Kansas, where the deer and the turkey roam. www.CarynMirriamGoldberg.com
