Thomas Wolfe says you can’t go home again. Leah Naomi Green and Josh Garrett-Davis seem to disagree. After swapping his South Dakota home for New York’s cityscape, Garrett-Davis found himself drawn back through his recent novel, Ghost Dances: Proving Up on the Great Plains. Green never attempted to leave home behind, yet her upbringing in Virginia deeply influences her poetry in The Ones We Have. Place weaves its way into everyday experiences and life’s bigger picture for the two writers at PLACE BASED, where home adds depth and meaning to the trivial things in life.

Friday 10/19 Free, 6pm. The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative, 209 Monticello Rd. 984-5669.
