Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Event Description

Join us for an evening of poetry and prose as Susan Tekulve and Angela Kelly visit City Lights Bookstore on Thursday, July 25th at 6:30 p.m.  Tekulve’s novel, In the Garden of Stone is the winner of the South Carolina First Novel Prize in 2012. It is a multi-generational tale about the nature of power and pride, love and loss, and how one impoverished family endures estrangement from their land and each other in order to unearth the rich seams of forgiveness. The book has been named a summer "Okra Pick" from the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance ("Great Southern books, fresh off the vine"), and a "spring pick" from Library Journal. Kirkus Reviews calls the novel "lyrical, haunting fiction" and gave it a starred review.  Susan Tekulve’s nonfiction, short stories and essays have appeared in journals such as Denver Quarterly, Indiana Review, The Georgia Review, Connecticut Review, and Shenandoah. She is the author of two story collections, My Mother’s War Stories, which received the 2004 Winnow Press fiction prize, and Savage Pilgrims, (Serving House Books, 2009). Susan has received scholarships from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference and Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference and teaches writing at Converse College.

Angela Kelly’s, Voodoo for the Other Women, is a collection of largely narrative poems about relationships, a narrator often appears, offering glimpses of her parents’ hardscrabble marriage in the Appalachia of the 1960s, her own coming of age in the 1970s, a young marriage of her own and the subsequent unraveling of it in the 1980s. In the aftermath and in the more current decades, newer relationships emerge and others resolve in poems with striking images: a cracked birdbath with a dead sparrow in its dry bowl, a lava lamp leaking blue gel amid other forgotten belongings, a shattered headboard and hammer-beaten pillows. These poems tell of loss and love through the aching, small details, the visions that remain long after a relationship ends or you close the book on pain.  Kelly is the author of four chapbooks, and has won the Carrie McCray Nickens Fellowship in Poetry from the South Carolina Academy of Authors , the South Carolina Poetry Initiative Prize, the Yemassee Poetry Prize, and a South Carolina Arts Commission Literary Fellowship. She lives in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
