He has traveled to India and Nepal to learn more about Hinduism and Buddhism.
Dennis Lopez will be reading from his new book Freight Train To Avalon - poems and stories. Dennis is a carpenter, writer and musician, living in mid-coast Maine.

A silver world is speeding by o9n the road below.
Messages come in on the machine,
but I've turned off the ringer,
to make way for spectacular dreams
in railroad colors with
cameo roles played by old friends.

Dennis Lopez, from Fire Fly
