Event Navigation

Danny Stewart is the September and October writer in residence at the Library! at Bown Crossing! Join him and interact with Vox Poplar, a large, sculptural, scroll of paper with a bas-relief image of Cottonwood trees carved into the face that feeds into a manual typewriter.

About Danny: 

Daniel Stewart is a teaching-writer for The Cabin’s Writers in the Schools program, serving as Writer in Residence at Ada County Juvenile Detention, and Frank Church High, an alternative school, in Boise, ID. The author of the collection The Imaginary World, his poems have appeared in BOAATParenthesesPrairie SchoonerRattleScabThrushYes PoetryNightBlock, and Graviton Lit, among others.

On his approach to Vox Poplar:

I’ve been writing a series of sonnets (many of which are included in my new MSS, Sonnets of Innocence and Experience) dealing with identity, and translating daily lived experience into 14 line poems exploring how our lives intersect and influence each other in ways we’re not always aware. I want to incorporate my experience and interaction with the patrons of the library into real-time sonnets exploring people’s thoughts on identity and imagination. How much of what we reveal in our public identities is consciously created?
