The readings and special events began July 7, with a Q&A with Kathy Kincer, of the “Melodically Challenged” Radio Show, and a reading by Raymond Atkins.
“Exhilarating: That’s how I describe the spectacular readings that are taking place at Reinhardt University,” said Dr. Mark Roberts, vice president and dean for academic affairs. “The Etowah Valley MFA Director, Dr. Donna Coffey Little, and the poet and teacher, William Walsh, assembled for our students and community writers with that exhibit the best in contemporary literature.”
The initial event was followed up with Donna Little, Adriann Blevins, Bill Walsh and George Singleton. Earlier this week, Tony Grooms, Stephen Corey, John Williams, Reginald McKnight, Earl Braggs, Edison Jennings, Anjali Enjeti and Sandra Meek participated in the readings.
An off-campus event, July 10, featured Clifford Brooks and Michael Bishop who read at the Dogwood Terrance Restaurant in Acworth.
Remaining events include an afternoon movie July 15 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Wise Blood will be shown at the Cherokee Arts Center, 94 North St., Canton.
The 24-hour play will be held July 15 at 8 p.m. at the Falany Performing Arts Center. On Saturday, July 16, at 8 p.m., Will Wright and David Bottoms will read at the Dobbs Science Center Atrium.
Will Wright is a poet, editor, and 2016 Georgia Author of the Year for Tree Heresies, and Canton native David Bottoms won the Walt Whitman Prize for poetry in 1979 with the publication of Shooting Rats at the Bibb County Line and served as Georgia’s Poet Laureate from 2000-2012.
