Join longtime Godine author Wesley McNair for a reading from Late Wonders: New and Selected Poems. “McNair’s poems are just sharp enough to open our eyes anew—and just smooth enough for us to think such wisdom arrived by grace alone. His work is melodic without being singsong; it is both sanguine and realistic.” —The National Review
