About this Event

Ten years! That’s how long it has been since we opened the doors to Bookstore1Sarasota. To celebrate we’re welcoming back (via Zoom) the poet who started it all….who started our run of fabulous events with authors of all genres.

There is no charge for this event but registration is needed for the Zoom link. The Zoom link will be sent prior to the event. After you have reserved your place, look for a confirmation via email.

"William Heyen is a remarkable poet in whom the 'visionary' and the unblinkingly 'historical' are dramatically meshed.... He writes with the wild, radiant audacity of the visionary; yet his eye and ear are sharp, unsparing. His Crazy Horse in Stillness is a fantastic meditation that only Heyen might have dared--lyric, tender, appalling, heart-rending, unique." ~Joyce Carol Oates
