Meet Terri Kirby Erickson in Walkertown November 8
Join award-winning author Terri Kirby Erickson for a little poetry and laughter as she reads from her fourth and newest collection, A Lake of Light and Clouds, and talks about what it means to follow your dreams and become the person "you always imagined" you could be, in mid-life.
Since her second career choice, after "poet," would have been stand-up comedian, we are sure you will enjoy the show! Feel free to participate by asking questions about publishing, marketing, or anything else you would like to know if you, too, have aspirations of becoming a published author.
North Carolina native Terri Kirby Erickson is the author of four collections of poetry, including In the Palms of Angels (Press 53, 2011), winner of three international awards, and her latest collection, A Lake of Light and Clouds (Press 53, 2014). Telling Tales of Dusk (Press 53, 2009) was #23 on the Poetry Foundation Contemporary Best Seller List in 2010. Her work has won numerous awards, and has appeared in the 2013 Poet's Market, The Christian Science Monitor, North Carolina Literary Review, Storysouth, JAMA, Verse Daily, and many other publications, and has twice been chosen by former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser for inclusion in his American Life in Poetry column, sponsored by The Poetry Foundation and the Library of Congress.
Terri Kirby Erickson is a member of Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, a professional organization of women educators, and has taught a number of poetry classes in public schools, universities, and other venues.
