I was unable to put together a Book Notes column last Sunday, but I wanted to make sure that everyone knew about the book launch of "Rust Fish" (Lost Horse Press), a volume of poetry by Spokane poet Maya Jewell Zeller.
Zeller is a lecturer in Gonzaga University's English department who grew up on the Oregon coast. This volume has already garnered praise from critics for its evocation of the Northwest and its stories of "human ruin and hard-won grace."
Zeller will launch the book with a reading and party on Thursday, 6:30 p.m. at the Spokane Community College's Hagan Foundation Center for the Humanities, in the library (building 16).
The reading is free.
