Lara Candland’s new book, The Lapidary’s Nosegay, has been recently released as part of the Mountain West Poetry Series at the Center for Literary Publishing, Colorado State University. Candland has been writing and performing poetry, violin, and voice since the age of four, and has evolved a practice around a multi-disciplinary poetics that attempts to account for all five of senses. She was a founding member of the experimental opera collective, Seattle Experimental Opera, founded in Seattle in 1993, and has recorded and performed with her electronic duo Lalage. Her recent work includes collaborations with Utah-based opera company Deseret Experimental Opera. Candland’s first book, Alburnum of the Green and Living Tree was published by BlazeVox Books in 2010, and her performance with Lalage—poetry and live electronic looping and manipulations, appears on the CD Lalage: Live on Sornarchy. Her opera Sunset with Pink Pastoral was a finalist in the Genesis Prizes for New Opera and was presented at Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London. Candland lives in Provo, Utah. She is the mother of five children, and teaches language arts and coordinates the International Baccalaureate program at the Walden School of Liberal Arts.
Candland visits Pioneer Book as a guest of the Rock Canyon Poets. The reading and open mic are open to the general public.
