Poets at Author’s Night
It’s a special treat to host The Greenville Poets on Author’s
Night! Their theme this year is “Where did this poem come
from?” Together with the audience they will explore the whole
range of life through poetry that is touching, poignant, deep-felt,
happy, sad, and funny.
And at this event we will meet the latest addition to their group,
Aimee Noel! Aimee is a Count Consultant for VIDA: Women in
Literary Arts. Her essays and poems have been published and
anthologized in such works as Great Lakes Review, The Greening Review,
and Slippery Elm, and have been featured on WYSO’s Conrad’s
Corner. She earned her MFA from Lesley University in Cambridge,
won Ohio Arts Council’s 2016 Individual Excellence Award, and was
awarded a 3-month OAC Fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in
Provincetown, MA for 2016.
The Greenville Poets formed in 1985 with Miriam Vermilya, Myrna Stone,
and Belinda Rismiller. Today their members are David Lee
Garrison, Cathy Essinger, Aimee Noel, Myrna Stone, Lianne Spidel,
Suzanne Kelly-Garrison, and Belinda Rismiller. As a group they
have published ten books of poems, three volumes of translation, one
book of literary criticism, and two anthologies. Each has won numerous
awards, grants, and contests.
Author’s Night is a free event sponsored by the Friends of the
Library. It brings us the best writers in the area and a chance
to meet, chat, ask questions, and get to know these creative
folks. Join us Friday February 17th at Montage in downtown
Greenville. Doors open at 6:00 and the poetry starts at 7:00. Delicious
food and drink are available for purchase so enjoy a nice supper and
