  1. Dramatic Poetry Reading

    Dramatic Poetry Reading

    1797 Township Road 342
    International Falls, MN 56649
    Call: (218) 286-5258

    Our natural world inspires many artists and writers from all walks of life. Join local actor and poet Douglas Skrief at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center for a dramatic poetry reading.

    Skrief's collection "Stone Poems" gives voice to a boulder situated on the shore of Rainy Lake near the international border between Minnesota and northwestern Ontario. Addressing "the word giver" of the volume, the boulder tells the story of its origins and the journey to its present location. In the stone's musings there are reflected the changes that have happened to the landscape of Voyageur Country from the time of the glaciers till today.

    Recommended ages 10 and up. Free.

    "These poems are strong, stark, and full of space. They have an incantatory quality, as if a shaman is at work," said Piers Plowright, former BBC Radio producer.

    The author attended Harvard and Oxford. His work has appeared in The Paris Review and has been broadcast on BBC Radio. He is a former fellow of the Hawthornden Castle International Retreat for Writers and has received an Individual Artist award from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council. "Stone Poems" was chosen "Poem of the Week" by the poetry editor of The Guardian newspaper in England. He recently self-published "The Rain Inside," a collection of works prepared over several years for an annual arts event held in the Hill Country of Texas.

    After a career of freelance writing and teaching, Skrief currently serves as executive director of Koochiching Aging Options, a nonprofit serving older adults. He lives on the Rainy River in International Falls, spending summers near the stone of "Stone Poems" on Birch Point of Rainy Lake.
