Regional authors take a natural look at Spring
In her descriptive poem, “Borders”, Helga Kidder embraces spring and all its attributes. “The sun’s hands cup my face / one last time before she lets herself fall / behind the plateau of Signal Mountain.”
Winter becomes no more as spring takes over through nature’s imagery. If you wish to experience spring through words, this Tuesday, Star Line books will explore nature’s beauty with poetry read and written by regional authors.
Star Line bookstore aims to be Chattanooga’s bookstore. At last, there’s a place for Chattanoogans to gather and interact with each other over new content. On poetry night, authors, readers, and writers gather together to hear poetry by Helga Kidder, Finn Bille and more.
Helga Kidder is the co-founder of the Chattanooga Writers’ Guild and a UTC alumni. Her collections of poetry include “Wild Plums”, “Luckier than the Stars”, and her recently released “Blackberry Winter”.
She is joined by Finn Bille, an international storyteller who holds readings in Chattanooga and Denmark. Bille co-edited the anthology, “Southern Light, Twelve Contemporary Southern Poets”.
Along with Kidder and Billie, Ray Zimmerman, John C. Mannone, Bruce Majors, KB Ballentine, and Mia Hansford will showcase their written poetry at Star Line bookstore.
