MOVING ON: THE LAST POEMS OF ED LAHEY
Tuesday, July 17th @ 7pm
“The old miner king of poetry”—that’s how Mark Gibbons once described Ed Lahey. Dave Thomas called him “the chief of us old Montana poets,” and added, “Ed has written poems that I don’t think anyone will ever equal.” Sheryl Noethe called Lahey “My Very Own Pablo Neruda,” and Rick DeMarinis might also have had Neruda in mind when he said, “Ed Lahey is that rare creature who, I suspect, didn’t decide to be a poet, but simply had to be one.” Drumlummon Institute (a 501 [c] 3 educational nonprofit) is proud to announce the upcoming publication of a volume of Lahey’s last poems, called Moving On, edited by Mark Gibbons.
