Osher Poetry Reading: Rob Carney
"Poems from 88 Maps and The Book of Sharks" You'll hear about oceans and firestorms, sharks and coyotes, an entomologist, and a man who grows Bird Trees. You'll get two quick plans to turn our legislature into geniuses. Plus an owl song, some lynx music, instructions for How to Have a Campfire, a mini canoe, and more.
