Poets for Preservation with Donna Doyle & Rose Raney
Saturday, May 10, 2014 | 3:00 AM
Historic Westwood | 3425 Kingston Pike
Donna Doyle is poet in residence at Preston Medical Library and founder of Random Acts of Haiku. Donna is a native Knoxvillian who has lived all over the city. She is still looking for a place to call home.
Rose Raney’s poetry has appeared in New Millennium Writings and Now and Then. She received graduate and undergraduate awards for poetry and fiction at UT Knoxville, as well as first place in poetry from the Tennessee Writer’s Alliance. She is managing editor of a technical journal for the Department of Homeland Defense and the originator of Poets for Preservation.
Poets’ love of beauty and the neighborhood are translated into poetry that enchants!
Come join the celebration of Historic Westwood’s opening with the Spring Readings series. Native Knoxville poets, most residing in the area for 30 years, will perform engaging works about history, home, and new beginnings in celebration of the opening of Historic Westwood at 3425 Kingston Pike. Poets will read in pairs on Saturdays at 3 p.m. in April and May as listed below. Refreshments will be served, and guests are welcome to look around the newly restored mansion after the readings.
