The specificity of her language pulsated.
The slight twang of her accent soothed.
The images she painted required no brush.
Ohio Poet Laureate Kari Gunter-Seymour held the Celebrating Self audience rapt at the Fitton Center, speaking of - and reciting works about - her experience as an Appalachian woman.
(Oh, and there was the one poem about the famous football guy from Athens County, too - Geaux Jeaux.)
Gunter-Seymour celebrated not only the poetry of written and spoken words, she discussed how all the fine arts are related in capturing a moment in time. And turning those moments into something timeless.
Please enjoy a few images from the March 1 Celebrating Self event (as well as some of Kari's books) and please consider joining us for our season finale April 5 with The Local Stars of Reality Television.
