Michael Beadle Poetry Reading Poet and former Haywood County journalist and teacher Michael Beadle will be reading from his latest poetry collection, Primer, at City Lights Bookstore in on Saturday, November 11th, at 3 p.m. The book features poems about childhood and family, discovery and disappointment, triumph and heartbreak. Primer was a national finalist in the 2016 Cathy Smith Bowers Chapbook Contest, sponsored by Main Street Rag. Bowers, a former NC Poet Laureate who served as the judge for the contest, writes, “With courage and a kid’s heart, Michael Beadle brings to life the rites of passage of a small-town boy inching toward the threshold of adulthood.” Beadle is the author or co-author of four books on Haywood County history, including the local history Arcadia series books Waynesville, Haywood County and Canton. A former reporter with The Mountaineer and Smoky Mountain News, Beadle was active in the Haywood County arts community for nearly two decades, performing poetry at downtown Waynesville festivals, acting on stage at Haywood Arts Regional Theatre, emceeing events at Folkmoot festivals and teaching creative writing courses through Haywood Community College.
