Book Signing at Sundog Books with Anne Bailey: Nancy Marguerite’s Chopin
Writer Anne Bailey will be doing a book signing for her most recent book of poetry, Nancy Marguerite’s Chopin on Saturday, November 5 from 10am til 12pm at Sundog Books in Seaside. The chapbook, a single poem in 3 parts, was published by Green Bucket Press of Irondale, Alabama.
The poem explores Bailey’s relationship with her mother and the re-collecting of stories that shape the past. Bailey opens the work with images of mornings as a young girl on the piano bench sitting beside her mother, Nancy Marguerite Perrin Bailey, who often played the Chopin Preludes. Nancy Bailey was the librarian and journalism teacher at The Altamont School from 1970 – 1992, and fed poetry and literature to her daughter as well as to many former Altamont students during her career.
