NEXT CWC-NORTH EVENT DETAILS

Join Chris Arvidson for a travelogue through life

Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 2 p.m.

Cohosted by Charlotte Writers Club North and Main Street Books

Outdoor Stage behind Summit Coffee

128 S. Main Street

Davidson , NC


 

Event is free

Chris Arvidson will be in Davidson to celebrate the launch of her debut poetry chapbook, The House Inside My Head, published by Finishing Line Press. In addition to writing poems that speak universal truth, Chris’s metaphors and similes are fresh and surprising.

Darnell Arnoult, author of Galaxie Wagon: Poems say of Chris’s chapbook: “She gives us the small and large ways we are ‘near disaster.’  We live in it, it is our home, the wonderment of every single day, simple or profound.  This book is an enchanting tale of living every day with love of someone or something and at least a touch of fear to help us appreciate it.”   

 

Chris has worked in national politics, a nonprofit and land conservancies. She holds a B.A. from Olivet College, an M.A. from UNC Charlotte, and an M.F.A. from Goucher College.  She is an adjunct instructor at UNC Charlotte where she teaches creative writing and occasionally, courses related to her lifelong passion— baseball.  A regular at the Charlotte Knights baseball games, Chris most recently published an essay and poetry in issues of Nines: A Journal of Baseball History & Culture.  She has co-edited three anthologies in which her own work appears: Mountain Memoirs: An Ashe County Anthology, Reflections on the New River: New Essays, Poems and Personal Stories, and The Love of Baseball: Essays by Lifelong Fans.   
 

A native of Michigan, Chris, her husband Henry, and their two cats now call Charlotte home, a place where she writes, teaches, and paints. Sometimes the worlds of poetry and art intersect, the picture on the book cover is one of Chris’s paintings.
