Poet captures WNC culture in new book

Written by 

Jackson County resident Thomas Crowe will read from and sign copies of his new collection of poems, Crack Light, at 7 p.m. on April 1 at Grateful Steps Publishing at 159 S. Lexington Ave. (behind and one block over from Orange Peel) in Asheville.

The book includes powerful and stunning black and white photography by Simone Lipscombe.

This is Crowe’s first collection of poems that are exclusively focused on the Western North Carolina region. Combined with more than 20 original photographs by Lipscomb, it is a multi-dimensional look at the landscape of the mountains, as well as it’s cultural and environmental diversity.

“Crowe has become one of the most interesting writers in this region to follow. He has established a lifestyle and a voice that are both universal and local …,” wrote reviewer Rob Neufeld in the Asheville Citizen-Times
