“Poetic Voices of North Carolina,” a program by actress and playwright Connie Clark, will be presented Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m., in the Macon County Public Library. The free program commemorates National Poetry Month, focusing on the works of many of North Carolina’s 20th Century poets. Light refreshments will be served.
Connie Clark, a North Carolina Humanities Council Road Scholar, has written and performed plays on Emily Dickinson and Sarah Bernhardt. She holds a Master of Arts in Theater and Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Purdue University, and has taught at Purdue and Furman Universities. In “Poetic Voices,” Clark shares a hundred years of Tar Heel thoughts and feelings, from profound social issues to the quietest personal moments, as she performs poems with rich emotions expressed by many gifted North Carolina poets.
The Macon County Public Library is at 149 Siler Farm Road in Franklin. This event is co-sponsored by the Arts Council and the Macon County Public Library, and is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities; and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the NC Department of Cultural Resources.
