The Books Are Whispering
The title of this assemblage was adopted from the poem In The Library by New Hampshire poet, Charles Simic. The poem is dedicated to the Mexican poet Octavio Paz (1914-1998).
The assemblage infers: “The books are whispering … it is rumored that from one book many more books will emerge adding knowledge and a life of long learning.”
