(Ashland, Ore.) – Hannon Library will present Dori Appel in a celebration of National Poetry Month on Tuesday, April 21 at 7 pm in the Meese Meeting Room. Appel will be reading from her new collection of poems, “Another Rude Awakening.” This free event, held on the Ashland campus of Southern Oregon University, joins the many national poetry events held during the month of April. Dori Appel is an award-winning playwright and poet, known for her keen wit and compassion. She is the author of 17 full-length plays, including “Hot Flashes,” “Girl Talk” and “Hat Tricks” which was a finalist for the 2008 Oregon Book Award in Drama. Three of her previous plays won the Oregon Book Award: “Freud’s Girls” in 1998, “The Lunatic Within” in 1999, and “Lost and Found” in 2001. Appel’s play “Treed” recently received honorable mention in the national Earth Matters on Stage Contest, and will be given a reading at the Eco-Drama Festival in Eugene in May. Her newest play “The Heart of the Matter” will be produced in Ashland by Oregon Stage Works in June, starring Brandy Carson, and directed by Appel’s frequent collaborator, Carolyn Myers. Her plays have been performed throughout the United States, and have been translated for performances internationally. Her fiction and poetry has been widely anthologized, including pieces in “When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple” and “The Best is Yet to Be,” the audio recording of which was a 1997 Grammy finalist. Her most recent poetry collection, “Another Rude Awakening,” is published by Cherry Grove Collections. Robert McDowell praises this collection as illuminating and inspiring, written as if she were “a shipwreck’s last survivor” and tenderly sharing the stage with “Fellow Travelers who are all actively holding up an edge of the tent.” Copies will be available for purchase at the reading. Hannon Library presents this evening of poetry with Dori Appel as part of its Siskiyou Views series. The event is free and open to the public. For further information call (541) 552-6835.
