Poet explores family in reading at college

Tahoe Daily Tribune

Poet, teacher and author Kevin Clark will talk about his poems and the creative process March 7and 8 at Lake Tahoe Community College. Clark, author of “In the Evening of No Warning,” will read from his work and conduct a book signing at 7 p.m. March 7 in the LTCC student center cafe and a poetry workshop from 9 a.m. to noon March 8 in room E100.

Both events are free and open to the public. Wine and dessert will be for sale during the reading and book signing. This event is sponsored by the LTCC Foundation.

The Academy of American Poets selected “In the Evening of No Warning” for a grant from the Greenwall Fund. Clark teaches poetry writing and modern and contemporary American literature at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He received his master’s degree in creative writing and his Ph.D in literature from the University of California, Davis.

“In the Evening of No Warning” Clark uses his past relationships and memories to express the range of human emotion that binds humanity together. Playing ball with one’s father and then his or her children, a moment with one’s mother or wife, Clark brings into sharp focus the everyday moments that make up the lives of people.
