Karen Corinne Herceg and 8 guest poets read from her new book OUT FROM CALABOOSE released by Nirala Publications; live music and refreshments. Come celebrate with us and enjoy a relaxing afternoon of literature, music and community.
In this collection, Herceg brings us her life and all its many emotional truths, some ugly, some beautiful, but all revealed with restraint--so that by book's end, we are left in wonder.
