Thursday, December 12, 2019
7:00pm - All Ages
700 SW Madison Ave
Hosted by the Spring Creek Project. We're partnering again this autumn with local authors Eric Alan and Tom Titus to present The Nature of Gratitude, a unique program that brings us together as a community to explore and reflect on the many things for which we are grateful. Several presenters will share music, stories, poems, and photography.
The event will include live music from Grammy-nominated Native American flute master Gentle Thunder, accomplished songwriter and Oregon Book Award-winning poet Beth Wood, and a special surprise musical guest. Performance poets Jorah LaFleur and Charles Goodrich will contribute spoken word pieces. Other contributors include Tom Titus, author of Palindrome: Grateful Reflections from the Home Ground; and Eric Alan, photographer and author of the forthcoming Grateful by Nature.
Nature of Gratitude is free, and everyone is welcome. This year’s theme is “Returning,” and in line with the theme, we'll be accepting donations to support Oregon State University’s new “Food for Thought” program, which recaptures quality food that might have otherwise been composted and repackages it for distribution to low-income, OSU students who are experiencing food insecurity.
