Carla Shafer BS ’66
Carla Shafer BS ’66 and a poet friend traveled all over Ireland in October 2017, taking part in open mics and readings with more than 80 mostly Irish poets. While in Dublin, Shafer encountered Maurice Harmon, who previously taught English and Anglo-Irish literature at Lewis & Clark. They exchanged a few of their poems. She says it was wonderful to visit with him and his wife, Maura. As often as she can, Shafer travels to Oakland, California, to play with her preschool-aged grandsons, Akira and Hiroki.
