APSU to have reading by Poets Nancy Eimers and Karen Skolfield October 3rd


Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In early 2012, award-winning poet Nancy Eimers read a poetry collection that was tender and serious, but also deeply funny and playful.

“This is a poet who pays attention to small wonders, who marvels that ‘sticks / can walk’ and ‘the roots of trees gather / forgotten rains,’ who takes to heart ‘the river’s stillness behind a fallen log,’ and yearns over human fragility, a child’s hand with its ‘twiggish bones, the little covering of skin,’” Eimers later wrote. “In and around and under the wit these poems are enormously tender.”
