Award-winning poet to read her work in Pierre

Tuesday, July 7th 2015 - 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm at Prairie Pages Bookseller
321 S. Pierre St

Award-winning poet Sharon Chmielarz (SHMEE-larz) will present two programs in Pierre on Tuesday, July 7.

Chmielarz will be reading her poetry and signing copies of her books from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. CDT at Prairie Pages Bookseller, 321 S. Pierre St., and at 7 p.m. CDT at the Cultural Heritage Center, 900 Governors Dr.

Pierre and Fort Pierre residents also have another connection to the poet. The name of Prairie Pages co-owner Kathy Villa appears in one of Chmielarz’s poems, “Home Town 4th of July.” Chmielarz was a presenter at the South Dakota Festival of Books when one of the festival’s organizers asked presenters to donate an item for an auction. Chmielarz’s donation was to write the highest bidder’s name in a book or poem that would be published in the coming year. Villa was the winner.

“Home Town 4th of July” appears in Chmielarz’s latest book, “Visibility: Ten Miles.” The book is a collection of Chmielarz’s poetry, accompanied by the photography of Ken Smith. The poet plans to read mostly from “Visibility: Ten Miles” when she is in Pierre.

Chmielarz lives in the Twin Cities, but grew up in Mobridge. Of the nine books of poetry she has had published, four have poems set in South Dakota or North Dakota. She writes about family, the Dakota/prairie landscape, history and women. Chmielarz’s 10th book will be published in 2016. Her book “The Other Mozart,” a biography in poetry about Nannerl, Wolfgang Mozart’s sister, was made into an opera. She has also written three books for children.

Chmielarz’s work has been a finalist in the National Poetry series and nominated several times for a Pushcart Prize, which features work from small publishing presses. Chmielarz was the recipient of a Jane Kenyon Award from the Water-Stone Review and her work has appeared in many magazines.

Everyone is welcome to attend these events. For more information about the program at the Cultural Heritage Center, please call (605) 773-6006.

Tuesday, July 7th 2015 - 6:00 pm at Yankton Community Library
515 Walnut Street

Mark your calendars for the adult summer reading events at the Yankton Community Library, 515 Walnut Street. You won’t want to miss this presentation!

On Tuesday, July 7, beginning at 6 p.m., the Historic Cemetery Walk in partnership with the Dakota Territorial Museum and the Dakota Theatre is back by popular demand. Ticket holders will meet at the City cemetery to engage with re-enactors who tell the stories of some of Yankton’s colorful citizens of the past. Their lives differed greatly but they all added to our history. Tickets for tours, which start every fifteen minutes beginning at 6 p.m., can be purchased only at the library.
If you haven’t registered for the adult summer reading program, there’s still time. Stop at the desk, register, and pick up your Tic-Tac-Toe card. Begin reading and filling in your card. Then return your completed card for a small prize and entry into our grand prize drawing.
