Thu 11/8 7pm-8:30pm Flyleaf Poetry Reading & Open Mic Series (2nd Thursdays) Featured Poets: Robert Hill Long & Aaron Belz This monthly reading series is co-hosted by Stan Absher and Debra Kaufman and sponsored by Flyleaf Books. An informal get-together before the reading will begin around 5:45 at the Chapel Hill Foster’s, next door to Flyleaf. Please join the group for an hour of conversation. Featured readers will each read for approximately 20 minutes and, after a short break for the readers to sign books, there will be an open mic. Please sign up to read no later than 7 pm. This month’s featured poets: Robert Hill Long's latest poetry collection is Walking Wounded, which traces “the tragedies and ironies of war, conquest, famine, death but … redeems with images of resolution and hope.” A Wilmington native and former director of the North Carolina Writers’ Network, Long has lived in western Oregon for many years. He has four earlier books of poems, most recently The Kilim Dreaming. Aaron Belz’s latest collection of poems is Lovely, Raspberry. His poems have been described as “impressive, loopy … touched by a raw grace of mind and nimble phrasing… often hilarious, he is also wise.” Other collections are The Bird Hoverer, Plausible Worlds, and, forthcoming, Glitter Bomb. Belz lives in Hillsborough.
