Author, Kent Nerburn, at the Library Tues., Dec. 4th at 10:30 a.m.

 

I will be reading from my new book, Dancing with the Gods:  Reflections on Life and Art, at the Wabasha Public Library on Tuesday, Dec. 4th at 10:30 a.m.  Dancing with the Gods is a series of thoughts and reflections on the inner life of the artist, written for anyone who practices an art form or wants to understand some of the often unseen joys and challenges of the creative life.  I might also read one of my favorite pieces from my recently published book, Native Echoes:  Listening to the Spirit of the Land.   I encourage you to show up.  Kent’s visit is co-sponsored by River Junction Arts Council and Friends of the Wabasha Public Library.  This event is free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served.
