    I enjoyed this excursion very much! The poet, Hugh Martin, read some prose poetry from his upcoming book, about his experiences in Iraq. The poems were quite engaging. The crowd was overflowing--the program had to be paused while more chairs were brought in. The event was held in the Gallery, where there is a wonderful exhibit of Arizona landscapes.
