Reception for Poet Shirley Biggerstaff Wright on April 4 @ 5:30 p.m.

 

Shirley Biggerstaff Wright is a former pastor at Winterville Methodist Church.  She writes with great sensitivity about the experience of a cancer diagnosis and other life experiences.  Copies of her poems are hanging in the gallery at Winterville Library.  The Winterville Arts Council will honor Ms. Wright with a reception at the library on Thursday, April 4 at 5:30 p.m.  All are welcome to attend.

“From early childhood–a spilled piece of chocolate cake–to the approach of the very end of our lives, there is a common theme: loss. In order to move ahead effectively, one must grieve that which has been lost; yet, rarely does our society allow appropriate time, space, and encouragement to grieve. Wright’s poetry deals with various grief experiences–loss of health status, as in her own current situation; relationships; homes; and even distance grief as we view stories in the news. Her own openness to expression of deep feelings invites readers to explore their own grief experiences and to feel them to the depths of their being.”
