A full day of events at City Lights

Written by 

City Lights Bookstore will continue its monthly Coffee with the Poet series on March 15, and Don and Diane Wells will present their book, Mystery of the Trees, later that day.

Sylva resident and author, Ben Bridgers, will read selection from his poetry collection Doors at 10:30 a.m. Bridgers is also the author of a nonfiction work titled, Swimming the Hellespont.

At 7 p.m., Don and Diane will discuss Mystery of the Trees, a study of Indian Trail Trees — trees that were bent by native tribes to serve as markers for trails, water sources or significant spiritual or cultural locations. The meanings of these trees are not completely known, but the book compiles what data there is with the intent of creating a more permanent record of this portion of Native American culture. The book features many photographs, maps and interviews with tribal elders.
