Overview

East of Nowhere by Larry Christianson

"The world is a moving, fast-paced place. The poet slows us down, even stops us in our tracks and says, 'Look! Listen!' Larry Christianson is one of those poets who can grab our attention with the everyday details pulled out of experiences we didn't know we were having. Pay attention to the poet and the world becomes a richer, brighter place." –Barry Lehman, counselor, Rochester, Minnesota

About the Author

Larry Christianson is a Minnesota poet living in the Twin Cities metro area, and working as a chaplain at Auburn Homes and Services in Chaska and Waconia. He believes poetry transforms simple observation into fresh insights and imaginative perspectives—involving storytelling and nature appreciation in a stripped-down style that opens many doors for the reader to enter—expansive in making meanings and keeping memories alive.
