On Saturday, September 17th at 3 p.m., Linda Parsons and Sue Weaver Dunlap will visit City Lights Bookstore for a joint poetry reading. Linda will read from her fourth collection, This Shaky Earth. Parsons's poems are leavened with a hunger to understand the growing pains of childhood, to face the turning seasons with grace, to know that all will be well as we navigate this sometimes shaky earth. She is a poet, playwright and an editor at The University of Tennessee. Her poems have appeared inThe Iowa Review, The Georgia Review, Asheville Poetry Review and others.
Sue will read from her collection, Knead. Georgann Eubanks, author of the Literary Trails of North Carolina series, said of Knead, “Sue Weaver Dunlap has laid the table full. These warm and aromatic poems combine to create an Appalachian family memoir.” She lives in the deep Southern Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee.
