Like Lesser Gods. | Bruce McEver at the National Arts Club.

In The Menu, Visual Arts by Quiet Lunch

Quiet Lunch attended the historic National Arts Club in Gramercy Park on Friday evening, October 27th, to hear poet Bruce McEver read from his latest collection of work, Like Lesser Gods. Its not often we leave a poetry reading looking back over our shoulder hoping the poet might read one more poem for good measure, but Bruce McEver packs his works with such a personal, benevolent and profound sense of humanity one could not help one’s self –during such divisive and spiritually vacuous times– for wanting another serving more.
Fulfill your deeper humanist needs and buy his book.
