Join us for our monthly series of readings and signings by 3 poets at 3 pm! This month will feature Janice Moore Fuller (On the Bevel), Laurence Avery (Mountain Gravity), and Ron Moran (Tree in the Mind).
Mountain Gravity celebrates the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains with poems that are erudite and accessible at once, and that describe the history of the mountains and the tangible experiences of immersing in the incomparable beauty one discovers there. Mountain Gravity, is the debut collection of poems, by Dr. Avery , professor emeritus of English UNC Chapel Hill. The poems in Mountain Gravity touch the reader with historical stories of Cherokee Indians who lived in the North Carolina mountains, of contemporary Southern families maturing in a fast paced world, who ground themselves in nature, and of Carolina flora and fauna, beloved by Avery, adapting to rapidly changing habitats. This is a book Hugh Morton would have read and recommended if he were still alive. Come and enjoy this very special event!
