Tuesday, June 14th: Poetry. David Allan Cates reads from his new book of poetry The Mysterious Location of Kyrgyzstan. 7pm.
"David Allan Cates, the author of five novels (most recently the award-winning Tom Connor's Gift), has not until now published a collection of his poetry. The assured voice that emerges from the nineteen poems in The Mysterious Location of Kyrgyzstan shares a sensibility that admirers of his fiction will recognize: politically engaged, erotically charged, and remarkably fluid in shifting between closely observed naturalism (especially of Central America, where Cates does medical aid work) and dreamlike surrealism." --Bob Wake
