N.C. Poet Laureate Cathy Smith Bowers at PCPL Sept. 15

On Sept. 15, the Friends of the Polk County Public Library hosted an event featuring N.C. Poet Laureate Cathy Smith Bowers. Smith Bowers makes her home in Tryon.
More than 30 people were in attendance to hear the discussion entitled, “The Abiding Image:  The Healing Power of Poetry.” Smith Bowers discussed the creative process that works for her, beginning with the abiding image, writing into the mystery of that image and then crafting and polishing the poem that has made its way out of that process.
The Friends of the Polk County Library have programs planned throughout 2011 and into 2012.  For more information about the Polk County Public Library, volunteer opportunities and ways to support the library system, visit the www.polklibrary.org
