The Coffeehouse Writers series returns to the library this Friday, March 21, 2014. The featured poets will be The Coweeta Poets. Everyone is welcome to attend. It is 6:00pm in the Art Gallery on the first floor of the library.
If you wish to see more about The Coweeta Poets, AL.com has a write-up about them from last year’s presentation: 10 North Alabama women make up Coweeta Poets. From that article…
The images in their poems come from memory, experience, or the natural landscape of the Benedictine Retreat Center: ducks, pond, bullfrog, trees. Luther says they’ve also written about such diverse topics as aging, cheese, chickens, and the color puce.
The Coweeta Poets are talented women. All are teachers or former teachers. All have passion for the written word, and most have published in journals and anthologies. Many of the poets have won state and national awards and some have come out with poetry chapbooks of their own. Their 2010 collaborative work, Something More Solid than Earth, features the poems of seven of the poets.
