Poetry Reading with Dave Densmore

Famed poet and fisherman, David Densmore will be reading poems and stories at the Cannon Beach History Center & Museum in Cannon Beach on May 12.

Dave Densmore has appeared in the New York Times and Smithsonian Magazine, was one of the subjects of a documentary called 'Fisher Poets', and has published several books of his writings. He is well known as an artist and fisherman on the coast of Oregon and and in Alaska. He has appeared at events for the Bioneers, the 'Columbia River Keepers' events, and at New Bedford's 'Working Waterfront Festival'. He can often be found at schools speaking to children. When not fishing in Alaska or writing in Oregon, he spends his free time in Belize and Guatemala.

Dave Densmore is more than a fisherman and more than a poet, he is a staunch protector of nature and Mother Earth. His recent works are more often about the paint inflicted on Mother Earth by his fellow man than the contents of his fishing net, but the seas and the fishing life are his first love.

Hear Dave Densmore read his work and answer questions on Thursday, May 12 at 7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
