If you happen to tune into Spokane Public Radio at 6:30 tonight., you're likely to catch my friend, the poet Dennis Held, delivering a paper he wrote about the nature of art. Also, on Thursday at 6:30 p.m., the radio station will run an interview that Held did with cowboy poet Dick Warwick. And if you do catch either, or both, consider yourself lucky. Both Held and Warwick are as knowledgeable as anybody about their respective arts.
And don't tell anyone, but they've been known to make you laugh.
