By BCPL

The Friends of the Library continue their Spring Program Series on Thursday, April 14, 2016 at 7:00 pm when Kentucky Poet Laureate George Ella Lyon visits the Boyle County Public Library. For her term as Poet Laureate, Lyon has developed the Where I’m From poetry project, involving all 120 counties in Kentucky. At this author visit, she will read her recent poems as well as answer questions about her work and interests.


Lyon writes in many genres for audiences of all ages. Though she started out writing poetry for adults and teaching college, she now writes for kids as well as adults, and her teaching is in the form or workshops, conferences, and author visits.


This Meet the Author event is free and open to the public. An interpreter for the deaf is available upon request by contacting the Library 48-hours in advance at 859-238-7323.
