Author signing: Barbara Conrad - Wild Plums

When: Sun., May 5, 2 p.m. 2013

In this clever, heartfelt collection of poems, Barbara Conrad celebrates the unreal of what is real: a dead father entering a coffee shop, an old lover on bended knees, cedar waxwings in the guise of wild fruit. Whether the focus is time, colors, words, nature, social issues or personal relationships, the whole world seems to spin and startle in these lyrical, yet accessible creations.
