Event Details

Sunday with Friends hosts Rita Quillen and other poets.

Meet Rita Quillen, one of the region’s finest poets, who leads the annual “Celebration of Regional Poetry.” Her new volume, “The Mad Farmer’s Wife,” is a response to a life lived on a mountain cattle farm in Southwest Virginia and to a poetic persona created by noted Kentucky poet and essayist Wendell Berry over 30 years ago: the Mad Farmer. In a world increasingly detached from the land that supplies our all our essential resources, Quillen’s poetry helps us understand the complexity and challenge of living a rural life in today’s economy and the dark life-and-death struggles that are a routine part of farm living. She will be joined at this event by other poets from the Appalachian Center for Poets and Writers.
