She Gathers Me Poetry Read

Join us for "She Gathers Me" Poetry Read to honor the many talented  black women writers.  Attendees that volunteer to read can make a selection from various books provided.  Select books by authors such as Zora Neale Hurston, Alice Walker, Maya Angelo, Toni Morrison, Amanda Gorman and others.

Be sure to visit the She Gathers Me: Networks Among Black Women Writers exhibit on display in the main area of Switzer library. The touring display provided in partnership with the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University, Georgia Public Library Service. “Through the exhibition, viewers will witness the ways that writers seek community with one another that may not always be apparent through published works,” said Instruction Archivist, Gabrielle M. Dudley “While close friendships can be seen throughout, viewers will also see how these women respectfully challenged and shaped each other’s ideas and perspectives."
