Tim Conroy at Buxton Books

Thursday, February 21st

5:00- 7:00 PM

Join us on the evening of Thursday, February 21st for a reception honoring Tim Conroy with a special appearance and introduction by South Carolina’s Poet Laureate, Marjory Wentworth.

Tim Conroy is a theologian of the best kind, a theologian of the ordinary. He knows, as we learn from the rough father in the first poem, that there are no assurances in this life—and there probably isn’t another. We face crushing loss and daily difficulties. We have to learn to live the best we can here, now. Buxton Books will have Conroy's newest book of poetry, THEOLOGIES OF TERRAIN for sale at the event.

Marjory Wentworth’s poems have appeared in numerous books, magazines, and anthologies. She has been nominated for The Pushcart Prize four times, and she is the Poet Laureate of South Carolina.

Conroy and Wentworth will begin reading and discussion at 6 PM.

This event is free and all are welcome. Beer, wine and light refreshments will be provided. We hope to see you there!
