Alan Weltzien - Poet and Essayist


Saturday, April 14: Longtime University of Montana Western English professor and writer Alan Weltzien joins us for readings from his new personal essay, The Comfort Pathway: Walking and Writing Through Death and Grief, and co-edited collection, Thinking Continental: Writing the Planet One Place at a Time. 1pm.

About Alan: O. Alan Weltzien, longtime English professor at UMW (Dillon), was educated at Whitman College (WA) and the University of Virginia. He has published dozens of essays, two chapbooks, and nine books. He has been a bookworm since age ten and prefers reading several hours a day, if possible.  Weltzien has received two Fulbright Fellowships (Poland, Bulgaria) and one UM International Faculty Exchange Award (Australia). Weltzien grew up hiking and, though a lousy climber, he still scrambles peaks in Montana’s endless local ranges. A native Washingtonian, he returns to Puget Sound (Camano Island) every summer for a month with his wife, Lynn.
