Don’t forget that the wonderful Ed Roberson will read tonight, in Laramie, at 5pm. The event will be held at the University of Wyoming Art Museum. If you’re around and interested in some good writing, you should come!
Of Roberson, Wyoming Professor Kate Northrop writes the following: “Ed Roberson is in a school of precisely one. His work is utterly unique, challenging, deeply serious, and richly musical. As is the case when one encounters excellent work, I find myself unsure how to respond, how to go about my daily life, after reading his poems. I’m stunned by them.”
Also, here is an excerpt from Roberson’s City Eclogue:
“Naked, the planet turns itself
into itself in a mirror model-
beautiful it shows its timeless line
Kate Northrop is not wrong, not ever.
Come on out!
