James Silas Rogers has been called “a very Minnesota sort of poet,” and that quality is on full display in the poems of quiet intensity that fill his new book The Collector of Shadows –snowy landscapes, migrating birds, luxuriant summer evenings, and more.  An essayist as well as a poet, his book Northern Orchards: Places Near the Dead was a finalist for a Minnesota Book Award in 2014.

Copies of The Collector of Shadows will be available for sale and a signing will immediately follow his reading.

Light refreshments will be served.
