Eugene Ruggles and the Novato Library

Delia--I just spoke with the head librarian in Novato--Donna Mettier. We discussed a proposed poetry program in Novato, and I happened to mention Gene's poetry, plus the anthology that Gerry is helping with. She asked if Gene lived in Marin and I told her he did live in Marin--he is also in the Marin author database in the library--I told her that after Gene's heart surgery, he lived at his son's place on Center. She was very interested in Gene's poetry. I told her I would leave her some poems. I think I should request The Lifeguard in the Snow for her from the County library system. Who knows? It is a flower blossoming. Carl
