Join us this evening for poet Noel Crook in conversation with Naomi Shihab Nye, discussing her newest collection, Salt Moon. Sacrifice and betrayal, parental love and patricide, unleashed desire and cornered despair -- these antitheses fuel Crook's Ovidian imagination... Rendered in instantly unforgettable images, Salt Moon is that rare book which grows richer with each reading.
