Join us on September 9 through 11 for our annual Laws Museum event commemorating the life of Curley Fletcher.
Curley Fletcher was a local Owens Valley writer and poet, whose literature had a profound impact, not only in his lifetime, but is remembered and recited around the world today, and certainly will be for many years in the future. Curley's poem, The Strawberry Roan, is a classic.
Curley arrived at the town of Laws as a baby in 1882, and after death was buried at Bishop Pioneer Cemetery in 1954. Fletcher's collection of poems, Songs of the Sage, was reprinted in 1986 by Peregrine Smith Books with a preface by Hal Cannon, Folklorist, The Western Folklife Center.
