At this event, two terrific poets join to read work from their latest books and pay homage to the poet Joanne Kyger.

Cedar Sigo was raised on the Suquamish Reservation in the Pacific Northwest. He studied at The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at the Naropa Institute. Sigo is the author of Royals (Wave Books, 2017), Language Arts (Wave Books, 2014), and Stranger in Town(City Lights, 2010). Of his work, Ron Silliman writes, “Cedar Sigo is a Frank O’Hara for the 21st century: witty, erudite, serious, with a terrific ear and eye for the minutest details, at home in the world of the arts.” He has taught at St. Mary’s College and Naropa University. He lives in Lofall, Washington.

Hailey Higdon is originally from Nashville, Tennessee. She is the author of several chapbooks including A Wild Permanence (Dancing Girl, 2018), Rural (Drop Leaf, 2017), The State in Which (Above/Ground, 2013), Packing (Bloof Books, 2012) and How to Grow Almost Everything (Agnes Fox, 2011). Hard Some, her first full-length collection, is recently available from Spuyten Duyvil Press. She currently lives and works in Seattle. Find her online at haileyhaileyhailey.com.

Joanne Kyger was the author of over twenty collections of poetry, including About Now: Collected Poems (National Poetry Foundation, 2007), As Ever: Selected Poems (Penguin, 2002), Going On: Selected Poems 1958–1980 (Dutton, 1983), and Places to Go (Black Sparrow Press, 1970). She also published an account of her travels, Japan and India Journals, 1960–1964 (Tombouctou Books), in 1981. Kyger’s final collection, THERE YOU ARE, combines 40 years of interviews, letters, poems, and journals edited by Cedar Sigo. It is available from Wave Books.Her poetry is known for its Buddhist influence and its natural imagery, often of the Northern California landscape. Of her work, Alice Notley writes, “Kyger’s major preoccupation is the attainment in quotidian life of that state where things and one are unveiled.” Kyger is also known for her wide range of influence on future generations of poets and poetry movements. The poet Ron Silliman notes, “She’s one of our hidden treasures—the poet who really links the Beats, the Spicer Circle, the Bolinas poets, the New York School, and the Language poets, and the only poet who can be said to do all of the above.” Kyger lived in Bolinas, California. She died on March 22, 2017.
