He is also the author of A Skeleton of a Bridge – a book of poetry, prose, and short stories, and most recently his book, Running Alone in Photographs – a memoir laced with gritty, introspective prose, that opens a window to a palpable experience of life in the Pueblo through the voice of Robert’s alter-ego Reyes Winds.

LA CHAT LUNATIQUEJoin us at Balloon Fiesta on October 9th at 5:45 p.m. for a night of exciting, eclectic music! As unpredictable, fearless, and entertaining as their namesake, Le Chat Lunatique purveys an addictive genre they call “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that makes you want to smoke and drink too much—if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, doo-wop, and “anything else we damn well please” into strikingly original compositions and audaciously reworked standards alike. Cost: $8 (Included with admission) Adults; Children 12 and under, free
