      SPECIAL EVENT IN SEPTEMBER

 


Saturday, September 10th  2:00-3:00 pm

 A Reading and Music by Shelby Stephenson, NC Poet Laureate

 One of Stephenson’s goals as Poet Laureate
is to raise awareness of local archives and family histories.

Says Stephenson, “I believe in memory and imagination. Everywhere l go across the state, see and hear others who feel as I do. I believe one’s life is worth writing about, so write your memories. To each of you I say remember, research, and write!”

Shelby Stephenson grew up on a small farm near Benson NC, pursued a variety of jobs, and taught at university English departments. The author of numerous chapbooks, he is an inductee in the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame, plays guitar and sings.

 Brenda Loy Wilson will also read.  She is an Alamance County author of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction.
