Free Range Poetry: On the Trail with Canadian Western Poet Doris Daley

Wednesday, April 20, 2016 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Alberta born, award-winning western/cowboy poet Doris Daley started her "professional" poetry career 20 years ago with one poem and a complimentary ticket to  a barbeque.  Now she is at home on stages throughout Canada and the U.S., at campfires large and small, at private parties, corporate events and North America's most iconic cowboy poetry gatherings. Enjoy a visit with this amicable western ambassador, of whom Nevada poet Waddie Mitchell says, "If cowboy poetry was milk, and the cream that rises to the top was the very best of the best, then Doris Daley would be very rich and very fattening."

Intended audience: adults & young adults (ages 16+)
Hosted by Sheep River Library (Turner Valley, AB)
