The WCPA is happy to help the Thirsty Lab poetry reading go virtual for their 4th (and occasional 5th) Tuesday reading. On Tuesday, April 27, 20201, Terry Farish will be the feature.
Visit the Zoom registration link to receive information on how to join the reading, and Zoom will send you an e-mail with the meeting details and link.
Terry Farish writes picture books, novels, and poetry. The Good Braider, a novel in verse about a girl from South Sudan is an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults. Flower Shadows, about the war in Vietnam, is a novel for adults described by Kirkus as a “female addition to the Vietnam genre that is as moving as it is wise.” Many of her books are about families who have come to the U.S. as refugees, including Either the Beginning or the End of the World. Recently she collaborated with a South Sudanese writer, OD Bonny, to create A Feast for Joseph, coming out in September. She’s very honored to be part of the I’m Your Neighbor Project, a program that promotes the use of picture books from many cultures to create community conversations about immigrants. She used to be the children’s librarian in Leominster, which is how she met up with the Worcester County Poets. Now she lives in Maine.
