NEW: “Poetry in LA 2: LA vs LA” – book 2 of poems from the Facebook page @poetryinla
Return to more poems about LA, Lenoir Area, in this second book featuring poetry from the Facebook page, @poetryinla. This time poems cover our local arts scene such as our murals and the famous Dirt Circle (“Across the Grain” sculpture by Thomas Sayre.) Poems go back in time to what our area was originally known as “Tuckers Barn” and to days of local raw honey and homemade molasses, the old Blue Bell plant and Lenoir High School. Current outdoor sculptures as well a local popular fresco get a nod in this second book, a sequel to “Poetry in LA – Only in LA (LA Poems)” published last year, 2017. There’s also a follow up to the poem “Hibriten Mountain” from the first book with the new poem “Mill Mountain to Hibriten Mountain.” If you enjoyed the first book “Only in LA,” you’ll want to read the follow up book with the new poems, too!
Successfully funded on Kickstarter, Poetry in LA is now available as a book or e-book of poems compiled from the Facebook page, poetryinla – “Only in LA (LA Poems)” Poetry about L.A. (east!). Poems are about Hibriten Mountain, Wilson’s Creek, Gravity Games, the Sculpture Fest, downtown, the car shows and our way of life in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountain area that locals fondly call “LA.” for Lenoir Area.
