Dr. Jesse Graves, a faculty member in the East Tennessee State University Department of Literature and Language, will speak at the Johnson City Public Library in the Jones Meeting Room on Wednesday, April 16, at 6 p.m.
A free, public event, “An Evening with Tennessee Poets” will include readings by local poets from the “Southern Poetry Anthology: Volume VI, Tennessee.”
Graves is launching his new collection of poetry, “Basin Ghosts,” published by Texas Review Press.
For his first collection, “Tennessee Landscape with Blighted Pine,” published by Texas Review Press in 2011, Graves received the Weatherford Award in poetry and the Appalachian Writers Association Book of the Year Award in Poetry. He is also the recipient of the prestigious Thomas and Lillie D. Chaffin Award given by Morehead State University in Kentucky.
Joining Graves will be DeVan Burton, an ETSU graduate student and aspiring writer whose poem, “Visitation: Every Other Weekend,” was published in the Southern Poetry Anthology.
Samuel Church, who holds an ETSU bachelor’s degree, is currently enrolled in the master of education degree program at Milligan College. His work has appeared in “Now and Then: The Appalachian Magazine” and “A! Magazine for the Arts.”
Benjamin Dugger, an East Tennessean with roots going back to his family’s arrival in the region in 1760, has had his poetry appear in the “Southern Poetry Anthology,” as well as in Ohio anthologies “Common Threads 2013” and “Everything Stops and Listens” and in “A! Magazine for the Arts.”
Dr. Ron Giles, a retired ETSU faculty member, has had poems, fiction and criticism published in various journals, as well as a one-act play, “Moses Otis Is Not a White Man,” which was given a staged reading at the Great Plains Theatre Conference in Omaha.
