Description

Wine and cheese plus poetry under the stars!

Come join us at one of the most beautiful venues in Columbus, the Rothschild-Pound House Inn, for a wine-and-cheese party on Friday, September 20 at 6:00 pm.

The party will be followed by Poetry Under the Stars in the inn's courtyard, under trees surrounded by flickering white lights.

Spoken word comedic poet Jonathan Samuel Eddie and poetry innovator JC Reilly will read their work.

The event is open to the public. Literary enthusiasts of all stripes are invited.

About the poets:

JC REILLY enjoys the peril of writing across genre. She has work published in Poetry International Online, Dandelion Review, Kaaterskill Basin Literary Journal, the South Carolina Review, and Grubb Street, among others. Her Southern Gothic novel-in-verse, What Magick May Not Alter, is forthcoming from Madville Publishing.

JONATHAN SAMUEL EDDIE is a spoken word artist, writer, comedian, actor, and playwright hailing from Columbus, GA. This teaching artist travels the country leading poetry workshops and performing his original work. With support from Alternate ROOTS, he most recently penned and staged the one man show, Journey Here, which candidly chronicled his life as a writer/performer, black man, teaching artist, and caregiver for his mother, then living with Alzheimer's. He published a chapbook of his work entitled "A Whole Notha Kinda Missing" that is available on Amazon. His comedic performances can be seen on YouTube.

His poetry has been featured on the digital platforms of Write About Now and All Def Poetry. He most recently was a featured performer on "The Golden Mic" hosted by Sunni Patterson on The Congo Television Network. He was a 2018 recipient of The Columbus & The Valley Magazine's "5 under 40" award, recognizing Five local leaders who have excelled in their fields.

He currently serves as the founder/director of the Fountain City Teen Poetry Slam, an organization that inspires youth to use their creativity as a positive outlet in their daily lives.
