September 16, 2020 (Carrollton, Ga.) – Georgia Poet Laureate Chelsea Rathburn will discuss and read her work, September 26, as part of the Carrollton Center for the Arts’ Visiting Artist Series.
“I often find modern poetry to be a bit abstract,” Arts Superintendent Tim Chapman said. “Ms. Rathburn’s work is more accessible. Her works are often derived from memories of a place or time. Her humor makes me chuckle and her work conveys how the past affects the future.”
Rathburn’s poems have appeared in such journals as Poetry, The Atlantic Monthly, the New Republic, Southern Review, New England Review and Ploughshares. Born and raised in Florida, she now lives in Macon, Georgia, with her husband, poet James Davis May, and their daughter and teaches at Mercer University.
Tickets to the event are $10 and can be purchased online at https://cprcad.myboxoffice.us/, by phone at (770) 838-1083 or at the Center for the Arts box office at 251 Alabama Street in Carrollton. The program is funded in part by a sponsorship from West Georgia Technical College.
