Events for Poetry and Spoken Word

Live Music and Book Signing with Robert Hunter

Rob Wildhide will become a celebrated novelist; he just knows it. But first, he'll have to overcome writer's block and survive a wayward trip to the North Woods of Maine with his new bride, Annie, and her treacherous friends (raft guides are not to be trusted!). A love story at its best and wild ride at its drunkest, Relapse careens through shaman-led weddings, car heists that lead to strange prophesies, and the inner workings of a mind rife with possibility and absolutely unaffected by the moonshine, thank you very much. Is it relapse, or is it revival? Rob Wildhide will try just about anything to find out where this story goes. Join us in welcoming Robert Hunter to The Printed Garden for an evening of literature and music. Hunter is an American singer-songwriter best known for his unique blend of lyrical alt-country-rock. His first two albums, Afterglow and Outta My Mind have been called "magnetic," and critics have called his music "hard wiring after a single listen." Now with a new studio album, largely inspired by his wife Becky, who is currently in remission after a battle with an aggressive form of cancer, and the new book, Relapse: A Love Story, Robert and Becky are out on a nationwide tour to celebrate life, love, and the madness of it all. Robert will be both performing and reading from his new book at The Printed Garden Wednesday night, January 30th. This event begins at 7:00 p.m.
