Kathryn Nuernberger is the author of the poetry collection Rag & Bone and is one of the editors

Leandra Spangler's passion for papermaking began in 1986 when she first plunged her hands into a vat of pulp. In the subsequent years, Leandra has explored numerous ways of making and using paper (handmade and found) as a medium in her creative artistic expressions. After 25 years of teaching art in the public schools, Leandra became a full-time studio artist in 2000.
Spangler teaches workshops in her studio, Bear Creek Paperworks, in Columbia, Missouri.
Street Studios is located at 106 Orr St. in downtown Columbia, Missouri. Join
us the third Tuesday evening of each month during the academic year for literary readings
and visual-arts presentations.
