Keynote Address by Tracy K. Smith

The re-scheduled visit by Tracy K. Smith, the Poet Laureate of the United States will be Monday, April 1 at 7:30 pm at the Ashe Civic Center.
Hurricane Florence altered travel plans in September for Ms. Smith during the On the Same Page Literary Festival.  We are very honored that she will be here in Ashe County to present her original keynote address. The event is free and seating will be general admission.

The evening will include story-telling, readings, conversation with the nation’s foremost poet. Ms. Smith is the author of Wade in the Water and Ordinary Light: a Memoir.  She will be available to sign books and to meet the public following her presentation.

The event is sponsored by the Ashe County Arts Council and the Ashe County Public Library with funding from a  program support grant from the  North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Affairs, the National Endowment of the Arts, the Ashe County Community Foundation along with Corporate support of Skyline Telephone Membership Corporation.
