Greenville Poets at Author’s Night

It’s a special treat to host The Greenville Poets on Author’s Night! Their theme this year is “Where did this poem come from?” Together with the audience they will explore the whole range of life through poetry that is touching, poignant, deep-felt, happy, sad, and funny.

And at this event we will meet the latest addition to their group, Aimee Noel! Aimee is a Count Consultant for VIDA: Women in Literary Arts. Her essays and poems have been published and anthologized in such works as Great Lakes Review, The Greening Review, and Slippery Elm, and have been featured on WYSO’s Conrad’s Corner. She earned her MFA from Lesley University in Cambridge, won Ohio Arts Council’s 2016 Individual Excellence Award, and was awarded a 3-month OAC Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA for 2016.

The Greenville Poets formed in 1985 with Miriam Vermilya, Myrna Stone, and Belinda Rismiller. Today their members are David Lee Garrison, Cathy Essinger, Aimee Noel, Myrna Stone, Lianne Spidel, Suzanne Kelly-Garrison, and Belinda Rismiller. As a group they have published ten books of poems, three volumes of translation, one book of literary criticism, and two anthologies. Each has won numerous awards, grants, and contests.

Author’s Night is a free event sponsored by the Friends of the Library. It brings us the best writers in the area and a chance to meet, chat, ask questions, and get to know these creative folks. Join us Friday February 17th at Montage in downtown Greenville. Doors open at 6:00 and the poetry starts at 7:00. Delicious food and drink are available for purchase so enjoy a nice supper and J.R. Price and Bill Westfall's super cool music!
