Words & Wine
A Readers' and Writers' Monthly Social
The purpose of Words & Wine is to provide a venue for authors to hold book signings and readers to meet them, purchase their books, and personally have their books signed by the author. Each month a featured author gives a 30 minute presentation then holds a book signing. Light refreshments and wine are provided. Attendees are asked to make a $5 donation at the door to the Lourie Center.
Tim Conroy will be the featured author for January. Tim Conroy is a poet, writer, and former educator. His work has been published in journals, magazines, and compilations, including Blue Mountain Review, Fall Lines, Jasper, Marked by the Water, and UGA Press. In 2017, Muddy Ford Press published his first book of poetry, Theologies of Terrain, edited by Ed Madden, poet laureate of the City of Columbia. A founding board member of the Pat Conroy Literary Center established in his brother’s honor, Tim lives in Columbia, SC.
Music is provided by Ken Baldwin and Igor Agafonov / Guitarists and Composers. Ken & Igor are an extraordinary duo. Baldwin, a finger-stylist, is more grounded in an Americana acoustic guitar whereas Russian born Agafonov has the gift of instrumental improvisation with a style that’s steeped in jazz and fusion music. Their portfolio is a collection of fifty original compositions that stem from complex instrumentals, to lyrical melodies and humorous songs from the far side.
