An Evening of Poetry with Wally Swist and Michael Miller Wed., Oct. 17 at 7 pm

Two exceptionally fine Valley poets celebrate the publication of new books.

Wally Swist will read from his new volume,
Huang Po and the Dimensions of Love.
"In this book, Wally Swist uses the flora and fauna that haunt the hills of New England to articulate love and its seasons. The ephemeral presence of deer, juncos, snowdrops, and new maple leaves express the absence of a lost love... The hand that lets go is open to receive something new and unexpected: coils of bittersweet, a dragonfly, a Chinese poem, another song."-Emily Grosholz

Michael Miller will present his new collection, Darkening the Grass.
"I read Michael Miller's poems with great pleasure in their accurate seeing, their assured phrasing, their true and proportionate feeling."--Richard Wilbur

"No other poet I know writes so beautifully about seasoned love....In his poems, in every present moment, informing one another, death and the possibilities for love tangle around each other."--Stephen Haven
