Friday, May 31st, 2019 | 7 PM – 9 PM | The Book Tavern
Our SpeakEasy for Friday, May 31st will feature special guest Anna Harris-Parker, writer and educator at Augusta University. Harris-Parker’s chapbook, Dress, was just released this month, and will be available for purchase.
“In Dress, Anna Harris-Parker explores themes of ritual, faith, loss, transition, and discomfort. The title for her chapbook comes from something Harris-Parker’s maternal grandmother would recommend: ‘Always buy a CCC dress so you can wear it to church, the cemetery, or a cocktail party.’ These occasions provide sections for this debut collection.”
“Anna Harris-Parker has published work in AMP, Cellpoems, Slant, and other journals. She holds degrees from Converse College and Wichita State University. She teaches at Augusta University, where she also directs Writers Weekend and advises Sand Hills literary magazine. She lives in Georgia with her husband and their two dogs.”
