Louise Runyon Poetry Reading/Book Launch

May 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

Decatur poet Louise Morgan Runyon will her launch her fourth book of poetry, The Passion of Older Women, on Saturday, May 12, at 4:00 p.m. at Atlanta Shambhala Center, 1447 Church St., Decatur, GA 30030. The event is free and open to the public.

The book is a manifesto on the wisdom, strength, needs and desires of older women – the rising demographic in our country. It is also a testament to women of the previous generation, “who have brought us safe this far.” The book affirms that older women will not go gently into this goodnight, the last phase of our lives. The poems are inspired by working the earth in Decatur, Georgia; a love of the Southern Appalachians; the current political situation; the experience of writing in Italian; and the status of older women in relationship to men. Included also are two short prose pieces – a life story in fable format and a summary of Runyon’s work as a dancer/choreographer.
