Joan Barasovska & Ashley Lumpkin

Friday, November 16, 7pm

We're having two poets tonight! Join us to listen to listen to Joan Barasovska and Ashley Lumpkin.

Joan Barasovska lives in Orange County, close to Carrboro. She has a private practice in academic therapy, working with children with a variety of challenging school problems. Joan started writing when she was ten and finds that as she gets older she writes fewer, better poems. She is a co-host of the Flyleaf Books Second Thursday Poetry Reading Series in Chapel Hill and serves on the board of the North Carolina Poetry Society. The poetry community of the Triangle has become an encouraging, embracing force in Joan’s life.

Ashley Lumpkin is a Georgia-raised, Carolina-based writer, editor, actor, and educator. She is the author of three chapbooks, {} At First Sight, Second Glance, and Terrorism and Other Topics for Tea, and one full-length collection, #AshleyLumpkin. A lover of performance as well as the written word, she has been a competing member of Piedmont SLAM, Scuppernong Slammers, and the Bull City Slam Team. She co-curates the series "First Draft," a reading of new works and works in progress. She is one-fifth (and only Slytherin member) of the Big Dreams Collective. Above all else, Ashley considers herself a teacher, poet, and changer of fates. She is a lover of mathematics and language. She loves you too.
