Guest speaker: Anne Campbell

When Ms. Campbell’s sixth book, The Fabric of Day, was published in 2017, she thought of it as a kind of summing up, a relief even - not to “have to write.” But life had other plans: a cancer diagnosis at the end of that year, followed by surgery and on-going treatment. But surprisingly, also a surge of energy, somewhat like a coda. Without intention poems asked for voice, and practically wrote themselves. It was as though life was saying, “You might have thought you were finished, but I’m not finished with you.” She hopes the poems she will read from the suite, called Poet’s Body, will evoke your own riches, thoughts and feelings, and remind that an unexpected turn in the path can provide unexpected depth to life.
