Prince Memorial Library will host poet Susan Deborah King on Thursday, April 6, at 6:30 p.m. She will read from and discuss her fifth collection of poems, Dropping into the Flower.
Her new book focuses in detail on many varieties of flowers, and through them explores many aspects of life: love, mortality, ecology, myth, history, politics, healing, grief, and the transcendent.
Formerly a Presbyterian minister and psychotherapist, Susan teaches writing and leads retreats on creativity and spirituality. She divides her time between Cumberland and the Cranberry Isles with her husband.
The Author Talk is part of a monthly series featuring local authors who discuss their latest book, their inspiration and the writing process. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, please contact the library at 829-2215.
