State of Art: Alaska author Don Rearden gets poetic in “Without a Paddle”

Author Don Rearden recently released his first collection of poetry called “Without a Paddle.” (Don Rearden)

This week on State of Art we heard from author Don Rearden. In his first published collection of poetry, Rearden covered everything from tiny moments in time to Alaska memories to big picture reflections. He talked about making poetry accessible, the lasting influence of growing up in rural Alaska, and what makes him a poet with a lowercase “p.” We also heard poems from his new work “Without a Paddle.”
