The Museum of the Big Bend will feature Texas poet Lucy Griffith at a free poetry reading on Thursday, May 9 at 6:00 p.m.

Happiest on a tractor named Mabel (a muse of 55 horsepower), Lucy Griffith lives on a ranch beside the Guadalupe River near Comfort, Texas.  As a poet and essayist, she has work in Bearing the Mask: Southwestern Persona Poems and Weaving the Terrain: 100-word Poems of the Southwest.  She is also co-editor of Echoes of the Cordillera: Attitudes and Latitudes Along the Great Divide, an ekphrastic anthology, and she was a contributor at the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference in 2018.
