Saulitis reads from
new poetry book
Homer poet Eva Saulitis reads from her new poetry collection, “Prayer in Wind,” at 7:30 p.m. today at Bunnell Street Arts Center. The book jacket describes her work as “prayer poems, forged out of a solitary confrontation with death, take a reader not out of, but deeper into physicality — of the body, the earth and language itself.”
Copies of the book will be available for sale, and Saulitis will sign her work as well as discuss it. Refreshments will be served.
