Poet Cynthia Schwartzberg Edlow shares her second full-length collection. Join us for the celebration - with a buffet, sparkling water, wine and desserts.
Horn Section All Day Every Day
chronicles offbeat subject matter melded to a deeply personal narrative of love, discord, revelation, and wonder. In this collection she presents three wide-bodied groupings: music and its musicians, chosen animals and their proclivities, and notably, "the story of Super Dan, an extraterrestrial superhero who comes to Earth to study and stays to marry the witty, earthy woman he falls in love with." Cover illustration is by Tom Bachtell. A booksigning will follow the reading.
Open reading follows.
