Hear ye, Hear ye!
Once upon a tomorrow (July 23, 7:00 pm) the minstrels and bards shall gather at the Library which is in Logan. They will meet in the Bonneville Room. They shall have refreshments from Cafe Ibis, and they will read the words of poets. The chiefest of these will be fiction writer Nikki Garrett.
Behold! Thou, o reader, may be one of them. Come early and sign thy name upon the scroll of people-who-will-be-reading. Bring forth thy works under seven minutes long and speak them to thy fellows! The time is at hand!
On another note entirely, Helicon West takes its name from Helicon Mountain in Greece. In mythology, two springs sacred to the muses flowed on its slopes, one created by Pegasus. The mountain and the springs in particular were supposed to give poetic inspiration.
And we do poetry…west of that spot. What a great name! We’re a clever bunch.
