The local musical duo known as Ellery, after a lengthy sabbatical, are back with a book of poetry called Once You Had Hands with photography by Michael Wilson. Justin & Tasha Golden join Barbara Gray to talk about the book and their May 1 event at Hoffner Lodge in Northside that will be part book launch and part Ellery concert.
