We Still Live Here
Where: Bernheim Hall, Ben May Main Library (701 Government St.)
When: Oct. 20, 2 p.m.

Poet Celia Lewis has recently appeared in the publications “Tributaries 2012,” “Whatever Remembers Us” and “Literary Mobile,” adding her voice to the Azalea City’s panoply of literary artists. Now, Negative Capability Press has packaged over 60 of her works into the collection “We Still Live Here” and the response thus far has been flattering.

“Every poem tells a crisp, textured story that moves the reader out of the solace of memory – with its momentary comfort – and into ambiguity, hardship and danger,” wrote Ralph Adamo, editor of the Xavier Review. “These poems may represent the work of a lifetime, but one hopes Celia Lewis is just getting started.”

Lewis will read from her book at Bernheim Hall and greet attendees in a reception and booksigning. The gathering also features the work of Walter Beckham, the book’s photographer.
The event is free.
