Local Man Makes Literary Scene -- Again

Here's an e-mail I received this morning and wanted to share:

One of Ed Arnfield's poems has been recognized by "The 16th Annual Juried Poetry Contest and Reading Event."  The poem, "Strawberry Patch," is on page 10 of the Roadside Guide to Michigan Plants, Trees and Flowers, the book that Ed and his wife Connie co-authored.  As a result, Ed has been invited to read his poem at the City Opera House in TC, 7p.m., Sunday, April 27, at the annual "Poets' Night Out." This event showcases the poets and poetry of northwestern Michigan.  
Additional winners will also read their poetry to the audience.  The audience then votes for their favorite. 
Additional information may be viewed here.   

We had a great party when the book was first launched. Way to go, Ed! And yes, of course, I have the Roadside Guide at Dog Ears Books! To clarify, Ed wrote text and did drawings, and the photographs are Connie's.

I remember that day! It was a lovely day, and Miss Sadie, the Cowboy and I drove all the way around the Bay to buy that book and have it autographed. On the way home we consulted it, if memory serves. In any case, I have just re-read the poem and enjoyed it very much, particularly the part about "the warmth they'd stolen from the sun" - which I could absolutely feel. What excellent news.

Fun then, fun now! Oh, and Gerry, David finally started reading that book you've been waiting for so patiently....
