Celebrate the Publication of HANGING DOG CREEK by Mary Ricketson


Saturday, Nov 1, I will be at Hill Gallery, 139 Emily Ln (across from post office), Brasstown, 3-4 pm, reading poems from my new book and talking about writing and publishing.  Everyone is welcome.  It's free.

Friday, Nov 7, I will be at Curiosity Bookstore in Murphy during the First Friday Artwalk.  I'll be in the store to sign books, still launching Hanging Dog Creek, published by Future Cycle Press.

Obviously this is being sent to a bunch of my friends and fellow writers.  Thanks to all of you who read my poems and listened over these years.   It's an exciting book.  Celebrate with me, whether at these events or elsewhere.  And thanks everyone for your support.

Mary's book, Hanging Dog Creek, is an excellent book of poetry. I have enjoyed reading it and re-reading it although I have heard some of the poems at local readings.
Good luck, Mary, and I hope everyone who enjoys poetry will order one or pick up one at your readings.
