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.
