Culxr House Hosts Author Heidi Hermanson

Saturday, May 18, Culxr House will have poetry with Heidi Hermanson, author of “Waking to the Dream,” a book and love letter to the Midwest.

Culxr House is located at 2417 Burdette Street, Omaha, and will entertain from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm with food and refreshments. The book reading will feature a talented lineup including Michelle Eva, Middle Eastern dance, and more.

Marcey Yates, founder of Culxr House, says that they aim “to support your local creatives by giving them a platform to support their brand.”

SATURDAY: “Circus of the Mind”



Moonstruck luminescence, a salt-of-the-earth groundedness, and wry wit fill Heidi Hermanson’s Waking to the Dream—a peripatetic journey down forgotten Midwestern backroads, along the current of the Niobrara, and through the labyrinthine curves of more spiritual pathways. These are grit-stung, fierce and dreamy lyrics that will awaken you to the yearning, sorrow, and splendor of your life.

—Lee Ann Roripaugh, Author of Dandarians, South Dakota State Poet Laureate
