Lynnell Edwards: poetry

Edwards will read selections from her most recent collection, Covet, (Red Hen Press) that explore themes of history and the natural world in the Red River Gorge and Pine Mountain regions in Eastern Kentucky. She will also share poems from a new collection that uses primary documents, including journals and maps, to excavate Kentucky’s pioneer history, including early settlement, violent contact with Native Americans, and the problematic legacy of Scots-Irish identity.
