Stafford to read from memoir
The reading will feature Stafford’s newest book, “100 Tricks Every Boy Can Do: A Memoir,” which is about his brother’s suicide. The memoir features the themes of family, brotherhood and death.
In addition to discussing the book itself, Stafford will talk about his writing process and sign copies, which will be available at the event. He also will share videos, play songs on his guitar and answer questions.
Stafford, son of former Oregon poet laureate William Stafford, is a professor at Lewis and Clark College. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from the University of Oregon, then went on to get a doctorate in Middle English literature.
He has worked as an oral historian, letterpress printer, editor, photographer, teacher, and visiting writer in communities and colleges across the U.S. and other abroad.
