Mary Ricketson to Read from Precious the Mule

Join us Friday, November 11th at 5 p.m. as we celebrate the latest release of WNC poet Mary Ricketson. Redhawk Publications recently published her chapbook, Precious the Mule.

Precious the mule is a story of humanity, compassion, and kindness.  A mule gets injured, then draws the attention of a neighbor who walks past.  Set in winter and springtime in a small cove in the Appalachian mountains, a relationship develops between mule and human.  This poemetory, story in poetry, weaves Mary’s poems into a memorable story that joins sorrow and suffering with joy and hope. 

A 40-page book of poems with some pictures of Precious.
