Poetry Reading and Book Signing

Miami Township Branch Library

rosePoet Rosa Lane will read from her book Tiller North at the Miami Township Branch of the Dayton Metro Library on Monday, July 25. The reading begins at 6:30 p.m. with light refreshments starting at 6:00. The Library is located at 2718 Lyons Road.

Tiller North was the winner of the Sixteen Rivers Press 2014 Poetry Submissions Competition. The cover of the book features a painting by Dayton artist Arlene Loesche Branick.  

“In poems as lyrical as they are narrative, Lane presents a family and a landscape with precision and compassion. Her writing is as sharp as her heart is full. Tiller North is a moving and accomplished book.”
- John Skoyles, Poetry Editor, Ploughshares

Lane earned her Bachelor of Arts from Wilmington College in Ohio, then earned her MFA from Sarah Lawrence College. Her award-winning poems have appeared in The Briar Cliff Review, Crab Orchard Review, New South, and Ploughshares. She lives in Maine, but travels extensively.  

The poetry reading is free and open to the public. For more information call 937.463.BOOK.
