"Last Call" with poet David Lee at Ken Sanders Rare Books.

Ken Sanders Rare Books (268 S 200 E, SLC, UT)

Ken Sanders Rare Books is pleased to announce a reading and book signing with David Lee on Wednesday, May 7th at 7:00 pm at our downtown bookstore (268 South 200 East, SLC, UT). He will be reading from his new book, Last Call: New Poems by David Lee. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing (Wings Press, paperback, $16). This event is free and open to the public.

Ken Sanders says: “The original ‘pig poet of Paragonah,’ David Lee himself is traveling through Utah in May, and we have managed to book him for his first ever reading at Ken Sanders Rare Books. David Lee was Utah’s first poet laureate…do not miss this rare opportunity to see and hear one of Utah’s finest poets.”

Few poets of Western America fill the “organic intellectual” role better than David Lee. His poetry is the real deal when it comes to recording hilariously insightful (and linguistically accurate) observations of rural culture – and America at large – while using a host of astute literary allusions and techniques. Imagine Robert Frost simultaneously channeling Will Rogers and Ezra Pound. Imagine Chaucer with a twang. Last Call is bloody brilliant and wickedly witty. As Sam Hamill says, “If we were a civilized nation, we would declare David Lee a national treasure.
