January 28
Poet Peter Anderson will read from his latest book Heading Home: Field Notes, a dharma-bum narrative of Anderson's travels which lead him through the mountains and deserts of the American West, and eventually lands him in an eccentric end-of-the-road town fill of mystics, misfits, and mountain dwellers. 
Anderson will also lead a discussion on prose poems and flash prose, discussing the challenges of knowing and describing the places we call home. If possible, please bring copies of a paragraph of prose or a short poem which you feel evokes some aspect of your home — Crested Butte, Gunnison Valley, Western Slope, Colorado, etc. It can be something you've written or read, so long as it's brief, 100 words or less.
