Waymaking by Moonlight: New & Selected Poems with Bill Yake
Thursday, April 22 at 7 p.m.

A free online reading in the Nature of Writing Speaker Series - a collaboration between Village Books and North Cascades Institute - discover more upcoming readings at ncascades.org/events.

This new title is the definitive collection of fifty years of Bill Yake's observant, thoughtful, lyrical, and startling poems — poems of the natural world and the curious ways of humankind. It is an intimate journal of phenomena, discoveries gathered from the backcountry and from the back shelves of second-hand bookstores, alike. These poems share the essences of rivers, friends, ancient trees, word origins, fungi, mountains, family, field guides, decay, and conversations overheard on rainy on cabin porches and around campfires visited, on moonless nights, by impulsive and unfettered winds.
