Covid has re-arranged many a scheduled event around the world and we at The Bookstore are no different from the rest.

Since we still require masks inside our shop and since our event space is so small (compared to the Great Outdoors), we have, this summer, partnered with some of our friends and neighbors to bring you the following, off site:

Mon. Aug 2 @ 7pm

David Keplinger

The Long Answer, New & Selected Poems

Lilac Park Pavilion, Main Street Lenox
In case of rain the event will move to Church on the Hill, UCC at 55 Main Street.

 The Long Answer gleans from David Keplinger’s five previous poetry collections, covering two decades of his engagement with the lyric narrative. Through echoes of Dickinson, Rimbaud, William Blake, and the French prose poet Max Jacob, as well as a host of other European and American voices, this volume maps the ongoing “long answer” to the poet’s individual inquiries about family, influence, and originality while at the same time tapping the source and substance of a more far-flung, philosophical problem.
