We had fun in Sylva, City Lights Books, Coffee with the Poet

We had a great time in Sylva at Coffee with the Poet. Six contributors to Celia Miles' and Nancy Dillingham's Women's Spaces Women's Places read poems, short stories and essays. Kathryn Byer, a contributor to the anthology, hosted the event.  Newton Smith, treasurer for Netwest, was back in the country after a trip to Italy, and present today.
The room was filled with writers, poets and friends of writers. Jennifer McGaha read her piece from the anthology on the subject of running. I was happy to see Martha O'Quinn from Henderson County and JC Walkup, editor and publisher from Canton, NC. JC has the funniest story in this anthology. We laughed out loud as she read about buying bath towels in an upscale shop, one that did not display price tags.
