Jackson County Rep Launches Third Poetry Collection, 6:30 pm, Wednesday, 11/13, City Lights, Sylva

Jackson County Netwest Rep Catherine Carter will launch her third collection of poetry with LSU Press, Larvae of the Nearest Stars, on Wednesday evening, November 13th, at 6:30 pm at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva. 

Novelist and poet Ron Rash writes of Larvae, "I’'ve been an admirer of Catherine Carter’s poetry for over a decade, but this collection achieves a whole new level with its craft, vision, and urgency. Larvae of the Nearest Stars makes clear that she is one of our country’s finest poets, and her book deserves a place on the same shelf as collections by Mary Oliver and Wendell Berry. 'I will not cease telling,' Carter tells us in the final poem. May it long be so."  


  1. We are so proud to have Catherine Carter as our Jackson County Rep. She is an accomplished poet and I know her new book is excellent as were her past books.

  2. Congratulations to Catherine upon the publication of her third collection of poetry. I look forward to reading her new book.

  3. Congratulations, Catherine! I've been waiting for this book!
