The Lazarus Project is a collection of poems based on photos found in antique stores, junk shops, and over the internet, separated from their history, lost in boxes, drawers, or attics until their families are gone or whoever finds them no longer knows who they were or what they did. In a sense they represent the history which the poet Thomas McGrath said we threw out the back of the wagon train on our way out west. K.C. Hanson gives voice to the people in the pictures rescues them, and us, from time. The reading will feature a projection of the antique photos that inspired the book.
