Reading: A Green Bough by Nancy Corson Carter
November 10 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Nancy Corson Carter will read from A Green Bough: Poems for Renewal. The author calls her poetic quest a journey “to hold in tension the opposites of a celebration of the natural world and, in a time of great destruction, a call for its repair.” Through her timely and beautiful work, she hopes “to evoke a saving love for the bodymindspirit of this amazing planet that is our home.”
Leader: Nancy Corson Carter, professor emeritus of humanities at Eckerd College, has published two poetry books, Dragon Poems and The Sourdough Dream Kit, and three poetry chapbooks. Some of her poems, drawings, and photos appear in her nonfiction book, Martha, Mary, and Jesus: Weaving Action and Contemplation in Daily Life and in her recent memoir, The Never-Quite-Ending War: a WWII GI Daughter’s Stories. She and her husband live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Free and open to the public.
