The Behind the Book series returns to the Kingsport Public Library this week, featuring a discussion with author Felicia Mitchell.
Mitchell will be discussing her newest book A Mother Speaks, A Daughter Listens: Journeying Together Through Dementia. This free event will take place at 6 p.m. on January 12 in the library’s first floor auditorium (400 Broad Street).
Mitchell’s poetry tends to explore family roots and the natural world, with inspiration being drawn from people she has known, family members she wishes she had known, the medical world, her yard and trails farther afield, and archetypal myths. Her latest book of poetry shares the dementia journey of one mother and daughter.
Mitchell recently retired as Professor Emeritus at Emory & Henry College after teaching for 33 years. Visit www.feliciamitchell.net for more information about the book and related activities.
The Behind the Book series features discussions with regional authors and illustrators to find out more about their books. The series is sponsored by the Kingsport Public Library and the Friends of the Kingsport Public Library.
