Come Hear Georgia's New Poet Laureate

Writers' Night Out starts with a bang...

Not only is Chelsea Rathburn the new Poet Laureate, but the New York Times selected her new book Still Life with Mother and Knife for their “New & Noteworthy” list. Though I haven't read her latest yet, Unquiet Things by our other poet, James Davis May, is one of my favorite poetry books. 

Please join us for this great reading, plus open mic: Sign up at the door to read up to 3 minutes of poetry or prose. Arrive by 6 pm if you'd like food or refreshment at The View Grill.

New Poetry book by Kathryn Stripling Byer

Kathryn Stripling Byer's new book of poetry, Descent,  is coming in  October.  Outstanding cover. Great poetry.
She will read from this book when she is inducted in the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame at Southern Pines. 
The book launch for the public will be at Malaprop's Bookstore, November 11.

Descent is Byer's sixth book of poetry, and it won rave reviews from the best poets. You can read about it on her new website.

Congratulations, Kay! Your fellow NCWN West members are extremely happy for you.
