On Tuesday, November 30, 2004, Village Books and North Cascades Institute hosted Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and author Gary Snyder at Bellingham High School. Snyder had just released his first collection of new poems in 20 years, “Danger on Peaks.” The reading was attended by more than 750 people eager to hear his trademark mountain poetry, much of it set in the Cascade Range. Snyder also shares some work from Skagit poet Robert Sund.
