Peter Anderson and Rick Kempa will read from and discuss their collection "GOING DOWN GRAND: Poems from the Canyon." Peter and Rick co-edited the work, which is a collection of poems by sixty one writers offering poetic perspectives on the Grand Canyon from the rim, the river, and in-between. In addition to the work of dozens of contemporary writers, the book contains poems by prominent Western writer Mary Austin, early canyon settler William Wallace Bass, the Tewa-Hopi elder Albert Yava, Southwestern artist Maynard Dixon, the late cowboy poet Omar Barker, and beloved poet Carl Sandburg. Published by Lithic Press of Fruita, Colorado, the book was a finalist for a 2016 Colorado Book Award.
