Twyla Hansen and Charles Peek will sign

Twyla Hansen and Charles Peek will read from their books, followed by a discussion with questions and answers, and then sign their works of poetry. 

The State Poet of Nebraska, Twyla Hansen’s most recent work is Rock-Tree-Bird ($16.00). From memories of the isolation and beauty of growing up on a farm, to a burgeoning awareness as a teenager of the economic and cultural forces waged against family farming, to coming to terms with the legacies of her parents after their passing, and, finally, arriving at an appreciation of nature and the environment wherever and whenever she finds it, Hansen offers poems that are alternately sad, sweet, funny, moving, human, and humane.

Charles Peek won the 2016 Nebraska Books Awards competition for poetry with Breezes on Their Way to Being Winds ($14.95). He’s also the author of Where We’ve Managed Somehow To Be ($12.00).
