Cliterati Open No Mic Featuring Book Release for Kimberly Simms

Event date: 
Thursday, October 19, 2017 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm

Charis and Cliterati pair up to present an inviting and fierce open mic & reading series on the 3rd Thursday of every month. This month's featured poet is Kimberly Simms who will be debuting her new book, Lindy Lee: Songs on Mill Hill. This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The Suggested Donation for Charis Circle is $5. 
 
LINDY LEE: SONGS ON MILL HILL brings to life the social fault lines of textile mills in the rural Piedmont — themes of child labor, the changing roles of women, of a fading away of life where isolation is juxtaposed against a strong sense of community. 
 
Part history, part poetry — this collection is peppered with the poignant, rarely seen photography of Lewis Hine (1874 – 1940).  With Lindy Lee, KIMBERLY J. SIMMS finds the vast and profound in the smallest of domestic spaces. In the words of William Wright (2016 Georgia Author of the Year), she celebrates and records in vivid imagery “the joys and hardships of a charged, mythic, and sweat-soaked place.”
