Louis McKee, author of Near Occasions of Sin and Still Life, talks about Clauser--
"A trip into the woods with Grant Clauser is not simply fishing and campfires; he is one of those, you can tell, who goes to nature in order to “live deep and suck out all the marrow of life” as Thoreau said. Those of us who choose to tag along are well rewarded; there is the beauty of the wilderness, the music of the wild, and the delightful songs of the poet. Ordinary things that pass for life, fussing the late season garden, for example, can evoke curious thoughts and bring on stirring meditations."
Clauser's feature will be preceded by an open reading. The event, hosted by Marty Esworthy, begins at 7 PM with an open reading. This event is sponsored by the Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel.
