The book I’m reading this month, Desert Light, offers respite from the rain and takes readers into the beautiful but rugged landscape of West Texas. Odessa poet Loretta Diane Walker, a music teacher by day, lends readers her finely tuned ear and her artistic eye to explore this region of Texas and how it can be both lovely and ugly all at once.
