Book Launch:

I Thought You Would Be Shelter
by Catherine Ferguson
“Men Poems”

Since Catherine was a little girl, she had been writing poems. Encouraged by her grandmother, as a child she rhapsodized about “drinking lemonade in the shade.” The daughter of two painters who met while studying art in Mexico City, Catherine has been painting all her seventy years, AND writing as much as possible.

The collection of “Men poems,” I Thought You Would Be Shelter, has been a twenty-two–year project to reconcile her longing to be met by a man and the eventual integration within her psyche to find shelter inside herself. Catherine continues to thank the universe for being able to paint and write every day.



Book Reading:

A Festival of Birds
by James McGrath

James McGrath’s A Festival of Birds is his sixth book with Sunstone Press of Santa Fe.

A Festival of Birds is a flock of poems for lovers and wanderers: this is poetry for those of us who have strayed into a traditional, foreign culture to find ourselves in love and dancing in the shadows and light discovering who we are.”

A Festival of Birds is the gathering of love poems written during the twelve years James lived in Japan and Okinawa. For James, to share these poems is to love again.

Both are FREE!
