Author's Studio: Chuck Haavik - Christmas in the Northern Lands
Saturday, December 8, 2018
Chuck Haavik is a university pastor who took up writing poetry in his 60th year. He lives with his wife, Sally, in Duluth.
Haavik will read from his book and talk about his fascination over many years with how the northern world’s natural elements seem to embody many of the themes of Christmas.
He will talk about the journey of beginning to write poetry on a sabbatical from work in his 60th year, finding an unexpected treasure in his love of mysterious experience of putting one’s inner world on paper. His wife’s comment was, “I think you’re healing yourself with your poems!”
He will also share about the joy of collaborating with Duluth artist Aaron Kloss, as well as the many steps of learning enough about the book business to take the next step. Haavik may read a few of his other poems.
A question-and-answer session will follow the reading.
