About The Event

Leah Stenson will read selections from Life Revised, a hybrid memoir about suicide and its aftermath, and poems arising from her literary journey from New York to Tokyo to Portland to Mt. Hood Parkdale. She is co-editor of two poetry anthologies, including award-winning Reverberations from Fukushima: 50 Japanese Poets Speak Out, as well as the author of two poetry chapbooks and a full-length poetry collection Everywhere I Find Myself. Her narratives of everyday life, informed by her Buddhist practice of 48 years, explore the suffering and joy of the human condition and the redemptive power of compassion. She is the host of the Studio Series Poetry Reading & Open Mic held on the second Sunday of every month at 7 pm at the Ross Island Grocery and Café in Southwest Portland.
