Seeds and the Essence of Creation: A Poetry Reading
with Jay Bryan, Melissa Dowland, Ralph Earle, Gary Phillips, Bill Ross
Date: Sunday, October 15, 2017 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Every seed includes the essence of what it will become. Just as the flora and fauna of our environment, and even we ourselves, spring from tiny seeds, so works of creative inspiration grow from our seed thoughts. Five local poets bring these seeds to life through the work they will share with you. Free. Preregistration Required.
