Linda Annas Ferguson and I are happy to be included in the first year of the North Carolina Poetry Society Reading Series at McIntyre's. It's a monthly event, and our reading is coming up later this month. McIntyre's is a lovely independent bookstore that celebrated its 20th anniversary this past April. Please come to our reading if you're in the area.
Here are the details about our reading and the series:
Linda Annas Ferguson is the author of five collections of poetry: Dirt Sandwich, (forthcoming Press 53, September, 2009); Bird Missing from One Shoulder, Stepping on Cracks in the Sidewalk, Last Chance to Be Lost, and It’s Hard to Hate a Broken Thing. She was the 2005 Poetry Fellow for the South Carolina Arts Commission and served as the 2003-04 Poet-in-Residence for the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, S.C. A recipient of the Poetry Fellowship of the South Carolina Academy of Authors, she is a member of the Academy’s Board of Governors and was a featured poet for the Library of Congress Poetry at Noon Series.
Susan Meyers is a past president of the North Carolina Poetry Society and the Poetry Society of South Carolina. Her most recent book of poetry, Keep and Give Away, was the winner of the Brockman Campbell Book Award, the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance Book Award for Poetry, and was selected by Terrence Hayes for the SC Poetry Book award.
The reading series, featuring poets from the North Carolina Poetry Society, is presented monthly at McIntyre’s Fine Books in Fearrington Village. The event is ongoing, the 4th Thursday of every month except for November and December. Be sure to make a note to attend all of these great events:
