The audience will enjoy a conversation and reading with poet Ron Salisbury whose collection of poems—“Miss Desert Inn”—is receiving critical attention from the likes of acclaimed poet Dorianne Laux, who says: “Ron Salisbury’s poems move us from the poverty of Maine, to the grittiness of New York, from the glitter of Las Vegas, to the glamour of California's coast, informing us of the truth about this life, harsh as it may be, sorrowful, and wondrous and brief as it is. This is one man’s journey, and we learn as he does what it means to live with loss, with memory, with desire. An accomplished first book, informed by the poetry of Gilbert, Hugo and Kowit, these are poems of the middle passage, where there’s sometimes a woman and a glass of wine, always a good dog nearby, and a bad but beloved cat slipping out the side door.”

The event is free and open to the public.
