CWU Libraries presents NEA Big Read: Strangers Maybe Never Again: Knowing & Writing Wilson Creek
Ellensburg is interlaced with urban streams, many of them running underground. Wilson Creek, which runs directly through the heart of the city is one such creek. Join writer and poet Wendy Lee Spacek and a KEEN (Kittitas Environmental Education Network) naturalist on a walking tour and writing workshop focused on Wilson Creek and inspired by another one of Ross Gay's books, River, which consists of a series of meditations on urban waterways. Participants will receive a free custom notebook and pencil, a walking map illustrated by Heather Dappen, and a copy of Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude. Location: This workshop will depart from the Kittitas Valley Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 400 N. Anderson Street. No registration is required. Maximum attendance: 25 The CWU Libraries has received a 2023 NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) Big Read grant for its proposed community events and activities featuring Ross Gay's collection of poetry, A Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude.
