Celebrating Poetry and Great Reads

Good Morning Bookman Readers:

APRIL IS POETRY MONTH!! Each year the Bookman marks the season with a special poetry event. In past years, we have turned the bookstore into a small theater for readings by our local poets. This year we are broadening our event. Partnering with Loutit and Spring Lake District Libraries, C3:West Michigan’s Inclusive Spiritual Connection, and Reeths-Puffer High School, we are initiating what we hope will become an exchange in celebration of poetry with poets from the East Side of our state. Three published poets, Nandi Comer, Sonya Marie Pouncy, and Willie Williams will present “Poetic Voices of Detroit.”

Spaceman of Bohemia

Fascinating look into the mind of a man boldly steering his own course, and trapped on a trajectory set by the people in his life. Humane science fiction, with a dark shadow, reminiscent of Stanislaw Lem. The first-person narrative leaves you ever in doubt of about how much he experiences is real. Strong characters, and beautiful language from a new voice who promises years of literary pleasures.
