The Bunnell Street Art Gallery faces Kachemak Bay and the southern sky. On May 21st, the light went on and on, shining on three musicians as they opened the evening, shining on the audience seated early in their eagerness to hear Eva Saulitis read from her latest book of poetry—Prayer in Wind (Boreal Books, 2015). The upbeat music featured Asia on washboard, Michael on guitar, Lasse on harmonica. The audience included many Homer painters, writers, musicians—and many, many students from Eva’s writing classes at Kenai Peninsula College. She has taught classes at KPC since 1999.
Linda Martin lives in Homer, Alaska, where she and her husband own and operate a full-service glass shop. Her first book of poetry, I Follow in the Dust She Raises, was published in March 2015 by the University of Alaska Press.
