Northwest Arkansas Poet John Rule is to read from his new chapbook "Bird. Moon. Star." at 7 p.m.  Tuesday, June 22, 2010, at Nightbird Books, one block west of the Post Office on Dickson Street. Every poem is a place and a time captured with a keen eye and questioning mind.
John's poems range from the historic to the deeply personal, with nature the recurring compass and comfort. Please join us to celebrate longtime friend (and local treasure) John Rule's new chapbook. Refreshments will be available.
