David Holper & Jeffery Purso | The Bridge & Water Bodies

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

David Holper & Jeffery Purso will join us to read from and sign their new books,The Bridge & Water Bodies.

The Bridge is a collection of award winning poetry by David Holper that walks with us by candlelight, side-by-side, as we put one foot in front of the other on the bridge that takes us from the depths of darkness behind us to the greater mouth of darkness ahead.

In Purso's Water Bodies, Doctor John Voltaire, returned to his riverside hometown following a prolonged absence, finds himself the focus of investigations into a series of mysterious deaths by drowning. Mosquito-infested, dripping with miasmatic mists, flooded by marshes, creeks and lagoons, death by drowning is not an uncommon occurrence in L, a small, isolated town sunk into the banks of the Upper Mississippi River Basin. But when Doctor John Voltaire returns to the place of his birth to settle the “family estate,” the drownings increase with a suspicious and frightening frequency, and Voltaire soon becomes a prime suspect in the investigation into the mysterious deaths. As mile-long oil trains cross crumbling city streets and railroad trestles, and acts of eco-terrorism further threaten civic safety, Doctor Voltaire utilizes logic, reason, and homeopathic remedies to confront his family, fate, and the intersection where the personal and the planetary collide.
