Nevada poet Gailmarie Pahmeier will lead a workshop and read her work Friday at Lake Tahoe Community College. Pahmeier’s appearance is part of LTCC’s ongoing writers’ series. Pahmeier has published three books of poetry, “With Respect for Distance,” “What Emma Loves,” and “The House on Breakaheart Road.” She is also a member of the English faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The poetry writing workshop will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Creekside Room of the Student Center at LTCC. The reading and book signing will take place at 7 p.m.

Both events are free and open to the public. Wine and dessert will be available by dona-tion and all proceeds will go toward student writing scholarships.

Pahmeier is a graduate of the program in creative writing at the University of Arkansas. At the University of Nevada, Reno, she has been honored with the Alan Bible Teaching Excellence Award and the University Distinguished Teacher Award. Her literary awards include the Chambers Memorial Award, a Witter Bynner Foundation Poetry Fellowship, two Artists Grants from Sierra Arts Foundation, and two Artists Fellowships from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency where she also served as a gubernatorial appointee.

Her work has been widely published in literary journals and anthologies.
