Poets Z.G. Tomaszewski and Laura Stott Rogers share their work at the Southwest Branch of the Weber County Library on Tuesday, October 1st at 7:00 PM.

Z.G. Tomaszewski has three published works; "River Nocturne," “All Things Dusk ” an International Poetry Prize winner selected by Li-Young Lee and published by Hong Kong University Press in 2015 as well as the chapbook “Mineral Whisper” (Finishing Line Press, 2017). Tomaszewski currently resides in the midwest lending his hands to preventative maintenance in historical spaces. Because traveling tends to offer such a wealth of creative inspiration and fresh perspective, he spends much of his free time applying for artist residencies, reading (and re-reading) books from his private home-library, occasionally stopping to write on hiking trails and giving readings as well as poetry lectures when time allows. When there’s a pause in that routine, Tomaszewski can be found making music, tending to the garden, listening to the porch chimes with his lips to a cup of perfumed green tea, rummaging through thrift stores with a ponderous agenda and going for long drives exercising his northern-eyes pointing out every red-tail hawk, deer and sandhill crane in sight to his lover.

Laura Stott holds an M.F.A. from the Inland Northwest Center for Writers (Eastern Washington University) and teaches at Weber State University. Her poems have been published in various journals, including Bellingham Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Cutbank, Quarterly West, Sonora Review, Redactions, Sugar House Review, and Rock and Sling.

This event is made possible with support from Weber Book Links, Weber County Library System, and Utah Humanities.
