    Meet Rita Quillen, one of the region's finest poets, who will lead the annual 'Celebration of Regional Poetry.' Her new volume, The Mad Farmer's Wife, is a response to a life lived on a mountain cattle farm in Southwest Virginia and also to a poetic persona created by noted Kentucky poet and essayist Wendell Berry over thirty years ago: the Mad Farmer. In a world increasingly detached from the land that supplies our all our essential resources, Quillen's poetry tries to help us understand the complexity and challenge of living a rural life in today's economy and the dark life-and -death struggles that are a routine part of farm living. She will be joined at this event by other poets from the Appalachian Center for Poets and Writers.
