Black Cat poetry reading Thursday

Catawbaís English department invites you to a Black Cat reading at the Literary Bookpost, 110 S. Main St., on Thursday, April 7 at 7 p.m. Because that date marks the first day of national Poetry Month, the reading will feature two North Carolina poets: Diana Pinckney and Gretchen Pratt. We invite you to celebrate poetry with a capital P (all poems, all poets everywhere), at one of the finest independent bookstores in the state.
A resident of Charlotte, Pinckney has four collections of poetry: ěFishing With Tall Women,î ěWhite Linen,î ěAlchemyî and ěGreen Daughters,î Lorimer Press. She has published in such journals as Green Mountains Review, Atlanta Review, Iodine, Calyx, RHINO, Cream City Review, Cave Wall, other magazines and anthologies. Her latest award is the 2010 EKPHRASIS Prize from EKPHRASIS, a journal of poems based on art.
Pratt is the author of one book of poems, ěOne Island,î chosen by Tony Hoagland as the winner of the 2009 Anhinga Prize for Poetry. She attended College of Charleston and Purdue University, where she earned an MFA. Her poems have been published or are forthcoming in Best American Poetry 2011, Iowa Review, Southern Review and The Gettysburg Review, among others. She lives in Matthews with her husband and daughter and teaches as an adjunct instructor at University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Wingate University.
Pinckneyís and Prattís books will be available at Literary Bookpost for purchase and for a book signing which will conclude the evening. For additional information about this event, call 704- 630-9788 or visit www.literarybookpost.com.
Fuller on Virginia Woolf
In conjunction with the St. Thomas Playersí production of ěWhoís Afraid of Virginia Woolf,î Catawba College professor Dr. Janice Fuller will explore the different voices of the English novelist. She will read excerpts from some of Woolfís most important works.
The reading will take place Tuesday, April 5, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Salisbury Wine Shop, 106 S. Main St. The event is free.
For more information call 704-647-0999 or contact faithart@bellsouth.net.
