10:00 –11:00am
Silver City Library, 515 West College Avenue

Raven Drake, poet and author of The Jagged Edge, will perform his poetry at the Silver City Library in celebration of National Poetry Month. Drake moved to Grant County 10 years ago and found inspiration in the magical geography of the area. His work reflects an ongoing exploration of and fascination with assorted mythic realms, and multi-dimensions of the imagination. For years, he’s been interested in poetry as an act of conjuration or spellcraft, taking as a given that archetypal space/time is fully inhabited with various aspects of the soul/self. For more information on Raven Drake, visit http://silvercitytourism.org/poets/raven-drake/ This event is open to the public free of charge.
