Statesville Library, Author Visit: Elisa Troutman
Tuesday, September 24, 2019
Join us for an entertaining evening of poetry reading by local author Elisa Troutman. Elisa and her husband Ed reside and work in Statesville, North Carolina. Living close to the foothills and to the mountains of Blowing Rock, Troutman grew up writing pieces that centered on nature. She graduated from East Carolina University, majoring in Conservation and continued studying Advanced Writing and 18th-Century English Literature at Davidson College. Anthony Abbott, the 2015 recipient of North Carolina’s highest award in literature, writes that he sees in Troutman’s work an astonishing linguistic gift where “poetry becomes a vehicle for life." Troutman will be reading from her 2019 book of poems of SOUTHERN EXPOSURE. A small reception will be provided by Iredell Friends of the Library.
