Poet to read from new collection

Written by 

Local poet and artist Terry Michelsen will visit City Lights Bookstore in Sylva to read from her collection of poetry Soaring on Wings of Word at 6:30 p.m. July 13.

Soaring on Wings of Word is a compilation of six previously published chapbooks. “Terry Michelsen knows that to write a poem, she must take her gloves off ‘... because bare hands do a better job.’ She brings a lively wit, as well as a keen attentiveness to every encounter. Light and shadow live here, and she brings the reader to both,” said poet Kathryn Byer.

A discussion and book signing will follow the reading.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
