Blackbird Poetry Festival- Nightbird
HoCoPoLitSo and Howard Community College’s 2019 celebration of poetry Words of Wit and Wonder features Mississippi’s Poet Laureate, Beth Ann Fennelly. Fennelly’s newest book, Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs (2017), was selected as one of the ten best Southern books of 2017 by the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “Readers, you are in for a hootenanny of a wild ride. This is Fennelly at her most laid-bare, wickedly funny, and irrepressibly poetic best,” raves Kirkus Reviews. Joining Fennelly on stage will be Hanna Al-Kowsi, Maryland’s 2019 second place Poetry Out Loud winner from Marriotts Ridge High School. A book sale and signing follows the reading.
