Recently Read This and Loved it all the Way – Carrie Nelson


George Ella Lyon is a celebrated southern writer whose work includes everything from children’s books to memoirs to plays.  She is, however, first and foremost, a poet which means her job is to “see and sing the connection between things.”  Her collection Catalpa won her the Appalachian Book of the Year Award, and last year she published She Let Herself Go, a wonderful new collection that includes odes to Virginia Woolf, a found poem in the form of an old family letter, and a narrative straight from the lips of Hera herself.  Recently read this and loved it all the way.
