Join Charlotte Lit, Beth Ann Fennelly and Park Road Books at Resident Culture Brewing Company on December 1st at 7pm. 4X4CLT is a poster series from Charlotte Center for Literary Arts that showcases poetry and art. In March, June, September and December, Charlotte Lit releases a set of four different posters featuring four poems, along with four works of art. The posters are displayed in 50+ places throughout the city—coffee shops, waiting rooms, libraries, storefronts. It’s art as a gift to the people of Charlotte. For each release, an open-to-the public reading and presentation are held with any of the poets and artists who can attend. In addition, a small group of local writers have the opportunity to take a master class taught by the featured poet or poets. This project is made possible with generous funding from the Knight Foundation. The 52 micro-memoirs in genre-defying Heating & Cooling offer bright glimpses into a richly lived life, combining the compression of poetry with the truth-telling of nonfiction into one heartfelt, celebratory book. Ranging from childhood recollections to quirky cultural observations, these micro-memoirs build on one another to arrive at a portrait of Fennelly as a wife, mother, writer, and deeply original observer of life’s challenges and joys. Some pieces are wistful, some wry, and many reveal the humor buried in our everyday interactions. Heating & Cooling: 52 Micro-Memoirs shapes a life from unexpectedly illuminating moments, and awakens us to these moments as they appear in the margins of our lives.
