Eric Nelson tonight!

Wonderful poet from Asheville, taught at Georgia Southern for 26 years.  Many awards.

Beautiful imagery. His book is titled "Some Wonder."  Rich and inspiring.


Second Poet:

Viet Nam soldier -- became a doctor; said the A in poetry was one of the few good grades he receivd.
PTSD -- hitting the ditch when he heard a car back backfire, while he was walking his dog.
Hard hitting poems about his experiences in Viet Nam.
