On Saturday, April 23rd at 3:00 pm, poet Anne Coray (pictured below) and her husband, essayist Steve Kahn, will read from their new books.
Anne Coray is the author of Bone Strings, A Measure’s Hush, and Violet Transparent. Her poetry has appeared in the Southern Review, Poetry, the Women’s Review of Books, and many other literary journals. Twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Coray was hailed an immediate success for her elegiac meditations, precise language, and her skill at measuring the natural power of her native land.
Steve Kahn is the author of The Hard Way Home: Alaska Stories of Adventure, Friendship, and the Hunt and a contributor to Alaska Magazine and the anthologies Wild Moments: Adventures with Animals of the North and Crosscurrents North: Alaskans on the Environment. On Kahn’s work, renowned author and environmentalist Bill McKibben writes, “These stories are quietly powerful, adventure without braggadocio, and with real insight – and they’re a powerful reminder of how lucky we are to have Alaska!”
Coray was born in a log cabin on Qizhjeh Vena (Lake Clark), Alaska, where she lives today with her husband and fellow author Steve Kahn. Her writing is known for its depictions of landscapes – both physical and emotional – as well as its examination of change, loss, and survival. Kahn is a lifelong Alaskan and former hunting guide who writes of his experiences regarding Alaska’s plant and animal life, geography, people, and politics, leading to hard-earned lessons about conservation, sustainability, and living well.
