Friday, 3/27, at Accent on Books: Cheri Jones

The power of poetry to explore areas of thought and experience that prose cannot touch is obviously something Cheri Jones understands well. This is clearly shown by her new book, Chains, which Jones will be presenting at Accent on Books this coming Friday beginning at 6:00 PM.

Chains is an appropriate title for this sequence of poems which portrays several generations of a family struggling with and against each other, bound as they are by chains of love and hate, kinship and madness. Although the characters are fictitious, the book is illustrated with photographs which add a powerful dimension.

Cheri Jones will be introduced Friday night by another acclaimed local poet, Marijo Moore. We hope you'll be able to join them for this special event at Accent on Books.
