Michael McFee reads from We Were Once Here, his new book of poems Thursday, 2/16, 7pm: Michael McFee reads from We Were Once Here, his new book of poems We're thrilled to host Michael McFee as he reads from his newest collection of poems! In We Were Once Here, Michael McFee continues to write inventive appreciations of often-overlooked subjects, particularly the people and language of his native Appalachia. This new collection contains thoughtful and playful celebrations of such things as snoring, a wall telephone from the 1960s, yardsticks, the Sunday newspaper, and Fats Waller. It also extends the poet’s characteristic lyric keenness into longer work, including a twenty-one-part centerpiece elegy for his niece. The book concludes with, and is framed by, poems that explore the bittersweet enduring joys of “here.”
