David Bottoms Print
Date: Thursday, July 22 2010, 7:15 pm—9:00 pm
Location: Decatur
Event Type: Author Talks
Series: Georgia Center for the Book's Festival of Writers
Age Group: Adult (18+)

David Bottoms, the distinguished Poet Laureate of Georgia and one of America’s finest poets, has a new book, and he’ll be here to talk about it! The book is The Onion’s Dark Core, and it’s mostly a collection of essays composed by the poet. Poet Edward Hirsch calls it a book that is ”personal, keenly thoughtful” and ”that treats poetry with the seriousness it deserves, as ’the most natural vehicle of the spirit’.” An appearance by Bottoms is indeed a special event, and we’re honored to welcome him for this evening. Bottoms has written six other books of poetry and two novels, and he holds the Amos Distinguished Chair in English Letters at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
