Video: “The Cherry Tree Near Loos” at Liminal gallery

Here’s another video I’m a little late in posting. The Liminal gallery in Roanoke, Va. hosts periodic readings, often in conjunction with an exhibit or classwork at Community High School, the private school with which it is associated.

I’m indebted to Cara Modisett, who organizes the readings, for finding someone to read the piece.
