Poetry Observing, Considering Ozarks Nature


Gerry Sloan’s poetry is much like Ozarks’ weather. It can take any form, can surprise and can simultaneously evoke comfort and challenge. His poetry is included in the new book “Wild Muse: Ozarks Nature Poetry,” from Cornerpost Press. He will read from the book, along with two other Arkansas poets, atPearl’s Books Friday night at six.
