Union Ave Books To Host KWG Anthology Reading
Several writers will read from their original poems, stories and essays published in a new book “A Tapestry of Voices: an East Tennessee Anthology” by writers from the Knoxville Writers’ Guild at Union Ave Books from 5 to 7 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 22.
This year’s theme of diversity will be reflected in the readings and will feature both prose and verse on a wide range of subjects. Some of those reading will be Lucy Sieger, whose essay about spiritual polygamy appears early in the book; Artress Bethany White, a poet and assistant professor at Carson-Newman College; and Jennifer Alldredge, who said the annual Shakespeare on the Square serves as the backdrop for her story, “Tarantella.”
Kay Newton and Doris Ivie edited “A Tapestry of Voices,” backed by a KWG committee that includes Martha Yarnell (chair), Kim West (designer), Meg Bensey, and others. The anthology is currently available for purchase at Union Ave Books and other independent bookstores or at www.knoxvillewritersguild.org.
The Knoxville Writers’ Guild meets the first Thursday of each month at 7pm at Laurel Theatre, located on the corner of Laurel Avenue and 16th St., Knoxville, Tenn.
The building is handicapped accessible and meetings are open to the public. The purpose of the KWG is to: facilitate a broad, inclusive, and egalitarian community among area writers; provide a forum for information, support, and sharing among writers; help members improve and market their writing skills; and promote writing and creativity in the wider community through education, publication, and sponsorship of writing-related public events.
