Program: A Study of Poet Ted Kooser– Led by Cheryl Miller
Look for Peebles Prosthetics There is still a lot of construction on Wadsworth in that area. Please note that you turn on 9th Ave, on the north side of the Jensen’s Flower and Garden, Peebles is just to the north of 9th. Peebles has many blue spruce pines surrounding the parking lot and a very large sign with red lips bordering on Wadsworth. It is really easy to find if you watch for these landmarks.
Alan Limnis of the University of Nebraska Press described Ted Kooser as “The Homespun Sophisticate” – an apt title for the first American Poet Laureate from the Great Plains. Kooser elevates the everyday details of everyday life, and his work is highly accessible. But upon reflection you may agree with former Colorado Poet Laureate David Mason: “Kooser is one of the best makers of metaphor alive in the country, and for this alone he deserves honor.”
