Memoirist and poet visits City Lights

Written by 

Janisse Ray will read from two of her most recent books at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at City Lights Bookstore in Sylva.

Drifting into Darien: A Personal and Natural History of the Altamaha River is a memoir and as in her book Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, Ray writes an account of her beloved river that is both social history and natural history, understanding the two as inseparable, particularly in the rural corner of Georgia she knows best.

A House of Branches is her most recent poetry collection, about waking up, looking around at the world, and discovering how to live within it.

To reserve copies call 828.586.9499.
