Quicksilver Dreams, Bonnie's latest book of poetry, chronicles much of Bonnie's life from memories of early childhood spent on a three thousand acre ranch in New Mexico, life in San Francisco as a member of the beat generation, and various reflections from a life lived as she says, "high, wide, and handsome." Some of the work pays homage to her heritage as a Native American, other poems celebrate the life of Sappho on the Isle of Lesbos. The breadth of the work is spacious and unique covering perspectives from the inhumanity of war to a deep understanding of the pain of poverty and the plight of women still yearning for true equality. This event is free to attend and booking is not required. There will also be a book signing session with Bonnie.
