Thomas More College’s Creative Writing Vision Program invites you to take a creative break from the bustle of the holiday season with acclaimed author and poet George Ella Lyon. Join us at Joseph Beth Booksellers in Crestview Hills, Ky., on Sunday, December 2 at 4 p.m. as George Ella Lyon reads selections from her young adult novel Holding on to Zoe and other books. This free reading will be followed by conversation and a book signing. On Monday, December 3 at 7 p.m. Ms. Lyon will speak about poetry and the writing life, and offer an opportunity to start a poem of your own in the Cincinnati Public Library’s Popular Library Reading Lounge, downtown Cincinnati.
With over forty books published and awarded, George Ella Lyon’s work speaks to a broad audience but often features her native Kentucky heritage. Recent books include the young adult novel, Holding on to Zoe, her poetry collection, She Let Herself Go and a re-release of the popular anthology, A Kentucky Christmas. Lyon has published various picture books over the years, including the recent titles No Dessert Forever! and When You Get Little and I Get Big.
