Louis Clark - Poetry Reading

Club member and PostNative American poet/story teller Louis Clark will appear Tuesday, January 24, 6:30 p.m. at Apple Blossom Books, downtown Oshkosh. You won't want to miss this entertaining presentation!

Born and raised on the Oneida reservation in northeastern Wisconsin, Louis V. Clark III turned to poetry to continue the oral tradition of his people, The People of the Standing Stone. A member of the Iroquois Confederacy, his family is of the Bear clan. His first chapbook, titled "Two Shoes," was published in the spring of 2011 by the Sequoyah National Research Center at the University of Arkansas. He has just received a Fellowship Award for his work from the Oneida Nation Arts Program and The Wisconsin Arts Board. He and his wife live in Omro where their home is filled with love from six children and the anticipation of a ninth grandchild.
