The log-jam is broken open and we are swept away in a current of water, trees, freedom, true love, and poetic imagery. And there is a breeze whispering in the branches: you can ride the updraft all the way back to eternity. . . . From the paper to the trees themselves, this book is an enchantment of trees and wooden things. Wonderful!" Russell will be interviewed as well as doing a poetry reading during this show.
