A spirited and lively evening is at hand here tonight as two esteemed local poets, writers, and community sustainers read here this evening. Both Georgia McDade and LaVerne Hall have long given much of themselves to supporting the work of others in various ways over many years—among them the local African-American Writers Alliance, church groups and more. Both have also been making new, now published work of their own. This evening will be a celebration of publication. Georgia McDade has a new book of poems (and 'exclamations'), Outside the Cave (AuthorHouse). Reverend LaVerne Hall, who was one of those involved with The Women of Color Study Bible a few years ago, is here with She (AuthorSolutions), a new book of her own poetry. This should be fun.
