Book Reading by Roger Dunsmore
FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2019
7PM

Former EHAHC board member, Roger Dunsmore's new book of poems, "On the Chinese Wall: New & Selected Poems, 1966-2018," just released by Drumlummon Institute in Helena, Montana, is informed by the lyric past of ancient Greece and the visionary traditions of ancient America as expressed by the Lakota visionary and Catholic, Nickolaus Black Elk. Herein can be found a poem for a loose ram, a poem for a woman kissing all the icons in the Byzantine Museum in Athens, a poem for a Montana trapper whose pet wolverine loved Oreo Cookies, a poem about wildness for the convicts at Montana State Prison in Deer Lodge. Please join us for a reading by Roger from over fifty years of written work that is an outcropping of the Great Subculture which reaches back beyond the stone-age cave paintings of Europe and before the time of Jonah in the belly of the whale.
