Join Pacific Northwest authors Bill Carty and Eileen Garvin for an afternoon of poetry and prose. Bill Carty will read selections from his latest poetry collection Huge Cloudy followed by Eileen Garvin reading from her novel The Music of Bees. Both authors draw inspiration from their careful observance of the earth, sky, and the beings that surround them. Carty has an MFA from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington and has received fellowships and awards in poetry.  Garvin is currently enrolled in the Master Bee Keeper Apprentice Program with the Oregon State University Extension Service.
