Eagle Harbor Books welcomes back poet/writer Holly J. Hughes to talk about her new book, “Sailing by Ravens,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 13.

Using a variety of poetic forms, former Alaskan salmon gillnetter, mariner, and naturalist Hughes deftly explores how we find our way, at sea, in love and in life. Hughes draws from more than 30 seasons working at sea, offering a lyrical view of the history of navigation, plumbing its metaphorical richness.

Eagle Harbor Books is located at 157 Winslow Way East.
