Please join Charlotte Writers’ Club North and Main Street Books for a celebration of the life and works of Anthony “Tony” S. Abbott on Sunday, April 8th at 4 p.m.

Tony, beloved by our literary community across the state and beyond, is the author of seven books of poetry, two novels and four books of literary criticism. He is currently the Charles A. Dana Professor of English Emeritus at Davidson College. In 2015, he won the North Carolina
Award for Literature, the highest civilian honor given by the state in recognition of his significant contributions in literature and public service.

Tony will read and recite poetry, and
special guests will share brief stories about the impact he has had on their lives. Wine and light hors d'oeuvres will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
