Henderson County Open Mic Night features poet Kimberly Sims; event is changed to January 22, 2018, due to the MLK holiday

Subject: Open Mic Night date change and guest reader 

Dear Writing Friends, 

As I announced at our last meeting, because of Martin Luther King Day, the library will be closed on January 15, which is the 3rd Monday of the month, so we will be having our open mic night, same time, same place, on the following Monday, January, 22. 

Open mic sign up will begin as usual at 5:30 pm. Then, we will have a special reading by Kimberly Simms, who was the poet-in-residence at Carl Sandburg house a couple of years ago. She will be reading from her new book that was featured in an article by Bold Life magazine--Lindy Lee: Songs on Mill Hill. Here is a link to the article:

Following the reading will be our regular open mic readings--3 minutes for poetry and 5 for prose. We will need to adhere more strictly to the time limit this month, so please read over your selection several times and be sure it adheres to the time limit. 

Hope to see you at our special evening to start off a year of Henderson County's Literary Open Mic Nights--a function of the North Carolina Writers' Network-West.
