CWC North Calendar of Events


Saturday, September 7, at 4 p.m.:  An Afternoon with Elisa Troutman and Her New Collection of Poems, Southern Exposure. Charlotte Writers' Club North and Main Street Books are co-sponsoring this event at Main Street Books, 126 South Main Street in Davidson,NC. Anthony S Abbott, Professor Emeritus of English at Davidson College, will introduce Elisa and her poetry. Visit Main Street Books Website for more information about Troutman and her event.

Troutman and her husband Ed live and work in Statesville, North Carolina. She studied ornithology at ECU and oceanography. Living close to the foothills and Blue Ridge Mountains, she grew up writing poems that centered on change in the natural world. She likes to question perception - how our senses choose, how we direct our eyes and ears, how we arrange what we want to remember or dismiss or push out of view. Her poems are not romanticized. There’s an irony at play in the details - a desire to get past the layers. She is is working on a new novel, Sami and the Janitor Make a New Language.
