From a Sundance Books and Music news release
Sundance Books and Music will host an open house for Reno’s first poet laureate, Gailmarie Pahmeier, from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 31. Stop by for an informal meet and greet and to hear about a few of the programs and activities Pahmeier has planned for the community. Refreshments will be served.
Pahmeier teaches creative writing and contemporary literature courses at the University of Nevada, Reno, where she has been honored with the Alan Bible Teaching Excellence Award and the University Distinguished Teacher Award. Her work has been widely published in literary journals and anthologies. She is the author of the poetry collections The House on Breakaheart Road and The Rural Lives of Nice Girls, two chapbooks from Black Rock Press, and Shake It and It Snows, which won the 2009 Coal Hill Chapbook Award from Autumn House Press. In 2007, she received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.
