December Reminder

Tomorrow night, Tuesday, December 8, is the December Poetry Hickory featuring readers from the 2009 edition of Kakalak.  The reading will begin at 6:30 at Taste Full Beans Coffeehouse in downtown Hickory (29 second st.)  The guest list won’t be entirely set until the reading begins, but right now you can expect to see and hear from Kakalak editors Beth Cagle Burt and Lisa Zerkle, and Kakalak poets Sally B. Miller, Lynn Stanton, Allison Elrod, and me (Scott Owens).  Each poet will read their poem from Kakalak, another person’s poem from the issue, and then another poem of their own not in Kakalak.  Because of the number of readers there will not be an Open Mic this month, but that feature of Poetry Hickory will return in 2010 (sounds weird, huh).  This is also a great opportunity to buy gifts for all the poetry lovers on your list.  Kakalak will, of course, be on sale, and for each copy you buy you will get to choose a book of poems from the shelf of books published by our sponsor, Main Street Rag.  Other ideas for poetry gifts can be found in my column “Give Poetry,” which can be read on my other blog:  If you have questions, don’t hesitate to email me at or call me at 828-234-4266 (especially if you’re reading and can’t find your way there)
