A Book Release Celebration and an Evening of Poetry
Featuring the Poet Laureate of Texas, David Parsons

The August Literary Sala will celebrate the publication of An Orchid Sari: The Personal Diary of an American Mom in 1960s India by Cynthia Claus, plus a very special evening of poetry.

Cynthia Claus

An Orchid Sari by Cynthia ClausCynthia Claus’s brand new book is a travel memoir written mostly during a trip to India in 1968–69. Cynthia was with her Indian husband and their two-year-old son, Ajay, as she and her son met her husband’s relatives for the first time. Her chronicle, fifty years in the making, captures all she experienced from impossible toilet situations to mysterious family relationships; from snake charmers to fire-breathers; from soul-crushing bureaucracy to fouled-up reservations; and from beggars with matted hair to the Taj Mahal.

Poet Laureate of Texas: David Parsons

David ParsonsThe Literary Sala is thrilled to present the 2011 Poet Laureate of Texas, Davis Parsons, along with some of San Miguel’s finest local poets. The evening will include readings by Libbe Dennard, Ken Morrow, Laura Wood, and Honora Simon, in addition to the celebrated David Parsons.
