Sunday, October 6 at 3 PM – Author Chat

Poet Michael Hettich reads from his newest book, To Start an Orchard.  

Richard Jones, editor of Poetry East and author of Stranger on Earth, says, “Michael Hettich is one of our best and most necessary poets because his dreamlike stories remind us how little we truly see and how often we sleep through the day’s deep revelations. This collection—so tightly choreographed and flawlessly written—is like a long poem that shines brighter with each turn of the page.”  Join us at the library for Michael’s reading.
