Poetry Reading

Last night the Westlake Library hosted a poetry reading in honor of National Poetry Month. Four Lake Writers, Becky Mushko, Rodney Franklin, Bruce Rae and Franz Beisser, all read original works, as did Beatrice Iceman.

The guest of honor, though, was Jim Minick, poet and literature professor at Radnor University. His readings from Her Secret Song, a collection about an aunt, were powerful and moving. If anyone wants to read more by a Southwest Virginia poet who captures the rhythm of life, check out Jim’s work.

I finished Her Secret Song last night. Twice.
