|Sena Jeter Naslund and the St. James Court fountain|
Ms. Naslund, a former poet laureate of Kentucky, is the author of Ahab's Wife, Four Spirits, and Abundance, a novel of Marie Antoinette.
Although I have yet to read any of Ms. Naslund's books (they tend to be very long), I have met her several times. Once was at a private evening reception held in the home of a mutual friend who lives on St. James Court. This was for the publication in 2010 of Adam and Eve. There was a meet-and-greet portion to the evening and then Ms. Naslund was to read from her book. I was sitting in the dining room and she was in the living room reading aloud. I couldn't see her so there was just this disembodied voice filling the air. A memorable experience and just a tad weird
But I can tell you for sure that the fountain at night is a wonder to behold!
