Once again, we are so lucky to live in Gainesville. On Thursday, April 11th at 7:30 at the downtown library Sidney Wade will read from her new (the sixth, I think) collection - Straits and Narrows. Many of the wild spaces that I love are in Sydney's poems. In fact, she and I met as our kayaks came up alongside each other on Orange Lake. So come to the library and hear a poet published in places like The New Yorker and the Paris Review read to us of our own prairies and rivers and birds.
