Local poets read at the Newport Public Library

Posted: Friday, Dec 28th, 2012

The Newport Public Library will host a poetry reading at 1 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 6. Poets Sandra Ellston, Ruth F. Harrison, and Dorothy Blackcrow Mack will give readings from their latest works, debut volumes from Turnstone Books of Oregon. The three authors, who are all retired English professors and award-winning poets, are members of the Tuesday Writers.

Ruth F. Harrison is author of several volumes of poems. Her new work, "How Singular and Fine," is a substantial volume with poems in several established forms: the sonnet, villanelle, epic, ode, terza rima, and other lyric structures. Of these poems, Marjorie Power says they "show us a world both fresh and mysterious, like newly fallen snow when the sun breaks through."
