On the 14th of March from 1-3pm, the Learned Owl Book Shop will be hosting Laura Grace Weldon for a signing of her poem collection, Blackbird.
The poems in Blackbird are "sacraments of the ordinary." Laura Grace Weldon embraces the world with her close and loving attention so that the poems in this collection make us all look around with a renewed sense of wonder.
This collection casts an uncommonly bright glow. In clear language these poems explore themes of connection and healing through subjects as unusual as cow pastures, dictionaries, to-do lists, and astrophysics. Beauty is revealed in what one reviewer calls "sacraments of the ordinary." Perfect for poetry lovers and those who haven't read a poem in years.
