James Silas Rogers

Poet and essayist James Silas Rogers joined the CSBSJU community in the Poetry Studio to discuss his book of essays and poetry Northern Orchards: Places Near the Dead. Rogers' book is designed to take the reader on a thoughtful trip into the past- mostly the past of the midwest, more often than not an encounter with the larger American past, and always a reflection both on how we remember and how we forget. Rogers participated in a discussion centered around the book and the connections it draws between its characters as well as the characters of our own lives.
