Come, join us for an evening of celebration! There will be music, beverages, antipasto, and poems!
On Friday, February 5 at 6:30pm, our very own Z.G. Tomaszewski will be reading from his new book, All Things Dusk (winner of the Hong Kong University International Poetry Prize of 2014, selected by Li-Young Lee). In this collection we witness a continual merger of self with landscape, sky, water, fire—the elemental self; of self with creature—the animal self; the failure of self and then, magically, a transcendence of self into the soul of the world. Our manifold being is presented through Tomaszewski’s interaction with the heart-felt, the mind-felt textures of the ordinary. We can look to the poems to show us some proof of the spiritual life, or, if nothing more, a testimony to the senses. 

Plus, do not miss Fiona Dickinson and Jeffrey Niemier (members of Saltbreaker) perform an original suite of music - ambient strings presenting contemplative soundscapes of the human heart.
