Linebaugh Library at 105 W. Vine Street will be hosting local author Jacquelyn Swift on Saturday (3/11/2017), from 10:00 that morning until 1:00 in the afternoon. Swift will be selling and signing copies of her book, Monsters: Poetry on How to Bite Back.
If you're past hell-bent on tampering with your present, and there are humiliating truths eating away at your insides that you'd rather not acknowledge--then this book may be a good fit. Especially, if you enjoy laughing.
Swift's book presents communal turmoil that most of us face in our adult lives and debunks them with simple solutions. This book is a step-by-step internal monster hunt that includes great poetry meant to, if nothing else, distract you from your own internal drama for a while.
By day she functions undercover as a librarian, bookmobile driver, teacher, and young bride of an insane computer genius. Under the cloak of night she prowls thru the cities of Southeastern Tennessee in search of the nearest open mic or cypher to crash and burn a hole into someone's stage. In addition to her self-help poetry book "Monsters," Swift further expands her double life as a poet by teaching people how to find their stage legs as well as how to find their voice on paper through her workshop series "Fangs: Take a Bite out of your Stage Fright."
Jacquelyn Swift will be selling copies of her book for $12 each--cash, credit and debit accepted.
