Montana Boyhood Memoir Presented at Albion College English Dept. Event (-)

With his powerful memoir of family and struggle in the American West, ooet and author Joe Wilkins visits Albion College as the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) New Writer Award winner. Wilkins reads from “The Mountain and the Fathers” on Monday, October 20, at 5 p.m. in the Bobbitt Visual Arts Center.

 

“The Mountain and the Fathers” recounts Wilkins’ upbringing in southeastern Montana, in a rural community hit hard by a drought. Raised by his mother and grandfather, Wilkins uses his own experience of fatherlessness to explore the struggles faced by many young men in his community, seeking to define their identities as men in a difficult and changing society.

 

Wilkins also won a 2012 Montana Book Award for “Mountain and Fathers.” He is the author of two poetry collections, “Killing the Murnion Dogs” and “Notes from the Journey Westward,” and has won the White Pine Press Poetry Prize and the High Plains Book Award.  His work has appeared in many magazines and journals, and has also been anthologized in Best American Magazine Writing, Best New Poets 2006 and many others. Wilkins earned his MFA in creative writing from the University of Idaho and he currently teaches at Linfield College.

 

A reception and book signing will immediately follow the reading. For more information, please contact the English Department at 517-629-0232.

Her current collection includes hundreds of autographed napkins, a napkin from the wedding of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, napkins from the early 20th century and napkins commemorating thousands of events. Campbell and her collection have been featured in print and television media, and she is currently applying for recognition by the Guinness Book of World Records.
