Don Welch has long been an esteemed poet and advocate of poetry in the Great Plains. The author of numerous poetry collections, Welch was Reynolds Poetry Chair at the University of Nebraska-Kearney until his retirement; among his awards for poetry is the Pablo Neruda Prize, and he has won life-time achievement awards from a number of Nebraska agencies. "When Memory Gives Dust a Face" is perhaps his most personal and more closely autobiographical work to date.

One of Don Welch's earliest memories is walking, never riding, to town and watching his shoes disappear in the dust. He grew up among the Dust Bowl poor, some of whom, despite withering poverty, had lark songs in their brainstems. Among his father's people were farmers and great athletes; among his mother's, readers and operatic voices. That kind of balance, he hopes, is reflected in his verse. After years of being a poet-in-residence, his university gave him what it thought was the perfect retirement gift, an ornamental pencil with no lead.
