Celebration of Regional Poetry
April 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
At our Sunday with Friends program, meet six regional poets who will help celebrate National Poetry Month. They were chosen, along with several other poets, by Jesse Graves and two other editors, to be included in the prestigious work, “The Southern Poetry Anthology, Volume IX: Virginia,” published by the Texas Review Press. Graves, who teaches Appalachian literature and creative writing at East Tennessee State University, will be the host for the event. The poets reading from their works include Candace Butler of Marion, Jane Hicks of Kingsport, Scott Honeycutt of Johnson City, Gretchen McCroskey of Bristol, Matt Prater of Saltville, and Amy Wright of Wytheville.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Washington County Public Library.
