Lifelong Learning presents Tea and Poetry reading

Coastal Carolina University's Lifelong Learning will host the second session in the Tea and Poetry series on Monday, Feb. 12 at 3 p.m., at CCU's Waccamaw Higher Education Center in Litchfield. The event is free and open to the public.

Susan Myers, president of the Poetry Society of South Carolina, and Richard Garcia, a celebrated poet from Charleston, will host the discussion and readings.

Meyers, of Summerville, is the author of "Keep and Give Away," and the winner of the S.C. Poetry Book Prize. Her chapbook, "Lessons in Leaving," won the 1998 Persephone Press Book Award. She also won The South Carolina Review's inaugural poetry contest in 2006. Her work has recently appeared in The Southern Review, Tar River Poetry, Crazyhorse and Verse Daily online. She has taught poetry classes and workshops in the Waccamaw Neck area for the past fifteen years.

Garcia is the author of four books of poetry: "Selected Poems," "The Flying Garcias," "Rancho Notorious," and most recently "The Persistence of Objects." His poems have appeared in The Georgia Review, Blackbird, The Colorado Review, Notre Dame Review, Crazyhorse and Ploughshares, among others. He was Poet-in-residence at The Long Beach Museum of Art for three years and at Children's Hospital in Los Angeles for 11 years. Now a resident of Charleston, he teaches online classes for Antioch University Los Angeles, and is on the core faculty of the Idyllwild Poetry Festival, also in California.

Subsequent dates for Tea and Poetry discussions and readings are Feb. 26 with Libby Bernardin and Diana Pinckney; Mar. 19 with Linda Annas Ferguson and Dennis Ward Stiles; and April 16 with Lavonne Adams and Malena Morling.
