Inner Circle Gallery Talk
Terry Wooten, April 19th at 10 am
The Charlevoix Circle of Arts will present an Inner Circle Gallery Talk on Thursday April 19 beginning at 10 am with northern Michigan poet Terry Wooten. Wooten has been called, “An everyday Homer writing as a modern bard for ordinary heroes.” He is an award-winning poet and creator of the Stone Circle, a talismanic landmark, and focus of an international documentary film. His collected works, The Stone Circle Poems, was selected as a Notable Book by the Michigan State Library for 2016. He has taken his performance poetry and writing workshop program to K-12 schools, colleges, libraries, festivals and conferences for over 30 years.
Terry is a two-time recipient of Michigan Creative Artist Awards, as well as having been listed in the Michigan Arts and Humanities Touring Directory, and his Elders Project was awarded the 2013 State History Award in Education from the Historical Society of Michigan. With a bioregional focus on people and place, he has written poems on diverse topics that range from Ernie Harwell radio broadcasts of the Detroit Tigers baseball games, to shipwrecks on the Great Lakes.
He has published ten books and his work has appeared in numerous publications. His book, Lifelines: A WWII Story of Survival and Love, has been turned into a play production, forensic piece, used as a book-of-the-month selection and as the foundation for school humanities projects. Terry’s first full length children’s book When the Bear Came Back: The Whole Story is now available.
