Poet Wesley McNair returns to Gibson's Bookstore to share his newest poetry, Dwellers in the House of the Lord. Set in rural Virginia, the poet's younger sister Aimee is adrift in a difficult marriage to Mike, an off-the-grid gun shop owner. Through this book-length poem, Wesley McNair, one of today's finest storytellers in poetry or prose, attests to patience and perseverance, and an unwavering belief in compassion and reconciliation, even amidst the ugly politics of our time.


Bookstore is wheelchair accessible through the cafe, via the button operated lobby doors.

"There's so much life in this beautiful book that it feels like a living thing. Wesley McNair is a kind of Chekhov of American poetry."
