About Memory Keeper ~ What is the embodied shape of memory? How is it cared for and set down into the hearts of future generations? Where lives the land of forgetting? Throughout these poems, April Tierney weaves together personal, collective, ancestral, and land-based memory into a single, glistening cloth. She courts the cultural necessity of tending to what might otherwise be lost, by writing her way into the past as a prayer for what is yet to come.

About Ann Mills and Max Miller ~ Ann and Max both work for RMNP and have been playing music together since they first met on a trail crew in northern New York. Between poems they will be playing a selection of their favorite traditional fiddle tunes and original songs on guitar, fiddle, and banjo.
