Last month the week-long Antioch Writers' Workshop was held in Yellow Springs.  The workshop's faculty members, all published authors, held nightly readings at Antioch University Midwest during that week and for the month of August we'll be bringing excerpts from some of those readings on WYSO Weekend. 

This week's reading is from Jeff Gundy, a Mennonite poet from Ohio whose work deals with a variety of subjects from historical to autobiographical.  He begins with a poem written after a walk in Glen Helen.
