to linger on hot coals Sweet Pea Project
poetic gathering Mulberry Art Studios
presented by OBGYN of Lancaster Loving Memories Photography
Sweet Pea Project is partnering with OBGYN of Lancaster to host a poetic gathering on March 8, 2014 at the beautiful Mulberry Art Studios (located at 21 North Mulberry Street in downtown Lancaster, PA) to celebrate the release of Stephanie Paige Cole & Catherine Bayly's new book, to linger on hot coals: collected poetic works from grieving women writers. The book features a foreword from Dr Joane Cacciatore and poetry from Stephanie and Catherine along with Kara LC Jones, Angie Yingst, Sherokee Ilse, Laura Seftel, Carly Dudley, Tara Hart, Beth Morey, Amy McCarter, Hannah Logan Morris, Devany LeDrew and Anne Morris. To learn more about this book, please visit www.tolingeronhotcoals.com.
This free community event will include refreshments, a poetry reading and time to mingle and leaf through copies of to linger on hot coals. Several of the book's contributors will be available to chat and sign books after the poetry reading.
Doors open at 1:00. Guests will have time to enjoy some light food and wine, leaf through copies of to linger on hot coals and view the candles from Lit With Love, while listening to the music of singer/songwriter Bobbi Carmitchell, who will be playing live.
At 2:00, Dr Joanne Cacciatore- founder of the MISS Foundation and Center For Loss & Trauma- will open with a short presentation via video about her involvement in to linger on hot coals, and the importance of expressing the full spectrum of emotions that accompany the death of a child. The poetry reading will immediately follow and will include pieces from each of the to linger on hot coals contributors. Angie Yingst, Devany LeDrew, Catherine Bayly and Stephanie Paige Cole will read live in the gallery and, since they live much too far away to attend in person, Kara LC Jones, Sherokee Ilse, Laura Seftel, Carly Dudley, Tara Hart, Beth Morey, Amy McCarter, Hannah Logan Morris and Anne Morris will share their poems with us via video projected on the gallery wall.
Stephanie, Catherine, Angie and Devany will be available to chat and sign books after the poetry reading has concluded. Books will be available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Sweet Pea Project.
