The Lavender House welcomes the community to join us in a reading and gathering featuring poets Shanan Balam and Danielle Dubrasky. Music by local Jake Rogers

Danielle Beazer Dubrasky received an MA in English and Creative Writing from Stanford University and her PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Utah. Her chapbook, Ruin and Light, won the 2014 Anabiosis Press Competition. She lives in Cedar City, Utah, homeland of one of the Paiute Indian Tribes. She teaches poetry at Southern Utah University and Grace A. Tanner Center for Human Values and annual Eco-Poetry and the Essay Conference. Drift Migration meditates on the intersection of landscape, myth, and loss from various imagistic perspectives that weave mythic lyric with distinctly feminine narrative poems. The poems explore relationships, loss, trauma, and a sense of place from the lush green of the south to the stark red rock of the southwest.

Shanan Ballam is a poet who teaches at Utah State University and is currently poet laureate of the city of Logan. Shanan was born in Ogden, Utah and currently resides in Logan, Utah with her husband, the poet Brock Dethier.
