Arts & Entertainment Franklin Poet at Rickman Store Saturday

Rose McLarneyNative Cowee poet, Rose McLarney will read from her new book at the Rickman Store on Saturday, June 21, at 11 a.m.

McLarney has won acclaim for image-rich poems that explore her native southern Appalachia and those who love and live and lose in it. Her second collection broadens these investigations in poems that examine the shapeshifting quality of memory, as seen in folktales that have traveled across oceans and through centuries, and in how recollections are formed in people’s lives.

McLarney's second book, “Its Day Being Gone,” won the National Poetry Series award and has just been released by Penguin. Her first book, “The Always Broken Plates of Mountains,” is available from Four Way Books. McLarney earned her MFA from Warren Wilson's MFA Program for Writers and has taught writing at the college. She is currently Assistant Poetry Professor at Oklahoma State University. This year, she received The Fellowship of Southern Writers' George Garrett New Writing Award for Poetry, her poems won Alligator Juniper’s 2011 National Poetry Prize, and in 2010 she was awarded the Joan Beebe Fellowship.

The public is invited to the store on Saturday, June 21, for refreshments, music, and an opportunity to hear this fine poet read from her latest work.

The historic Rickman Store is located on 259 Cowee Creek Road, seven miles north of Franklin by Hwy. NC 28, next to the old Cowee School.
