Artists' Milepost says
We are happy to announce the visit by two fine rural Ore­gon writ­ers, Dorothy Black Crow and Jack Lorts. Black Crow will read from her new Lakota mys­tery novel, The Hand­less Maiden, and Jack Lorts will read as series of his Ephram Pratt poems and some of his newer work. Both writ­ers are excel­lent story tellers who will enter­tain you with their wisdom.

Dorothy Black Crow
An award-winning poet, fic­tion writer and for­mer pro­fes­sor of lit­er­a­ture at Oglala Lakota Col­lege and the Uni­ver­sity of Michi­gan, author Dorothy Black Crow explores the real­ity of life on the Pine Ridge Reser­va­tion, from her own expe­ri­ence as a woman mar­ried to a Lakota Sun­dance leader, as well as from an outsider’s per­spec­tive. She writes with a blend of under­stand­ing, expe­ri­ence and knowl­edge.. Her Lakota mys­tery novel, The Hand­less Maiden, was recently pub­lished by Lucky Bat Books. She lives on the Ore­gon coast.

Jack Lorts
Jack Lorts poems have appeared widely in lit­tle and lit­er­ary mag­a­zines over the past 40+ years, includ­ing Arsenic Lob­ster, Fish­trap, High Desert Jour­nal, Hag­gard & Hal­loo, Elohi Gadugi Jour­nal etc. My most recent chap­books are “Dear Gilbert Sor­rentino & Other Poems” (Fin­ish­ing Line) and “The Meet­ing Place of Words” (Pud­ding House). Active in Demo­c­ra­tic pol­i­tics, he is cur­rently Mayor of Fos­sil, OR.
