Join us as we celebrate the release of David Stanford Burr’s debut poetry collection, Ledger Domain. A signing will follow. This event will be free and open to the public.
About the Book: In nine, themed sections Ledger Domain shepherds the reader on a journey from imagined birth, through the neighborhoods of childhood, boyhood, adulthood, father- and parenthood to the likelihood of an afterlife, an alpha to omega expanse that blurs the boundaries of human life. Interweaved—as with all our lives—are experiences of family, sensuality, sexuality, oneness with nature, spirituality, creative process, and the engagement with personae we come across or that are the legerdemain of our psyches. The reader journeys through David Stanford Burr’s words and vision and closes Ledger Domain with the sense of having arrived in the literal world, again, but with new eyes.
