Dometa Brothers will read from Cold Songs, her poetry collection of the harsh and beautiful Midwest and the sturdily pragmatic, yet bizarrely idealistic people, it produces. “In the tradition of Annie Dillard, Mary Oliver, and Peter Matthiessen, Brothers encounters nature as a mirror, a window, a door, a conduit to a better understanding of ourselves.” – Benjamin Percy
