Poet Danielle Sellers stops by and puts pen to page at Burke’s Book Store signing
By Corey Mesler
Oxford Mississippi poet Danielle Sellers will be at Burke’s Book Store on Thursday, February 4th, from 5:30–6:30 pm to read from and sign copies of her first poetry collection, Bone Key Elegies. The reading will begin at 6 pm.
Danielle Sellers is originally from Key West. She has an MFA from the University of Mississippi, where she held the John Grisham Poetry Fellowship. She’s founder and editor of The Country Dog Review. She lives in Oxford with her daughter, Olivia.
Of Sellers, Beth Ann Fennelly says, “What Frost did for New England, Danielle Sellers does for the Florida Keys, shaping a world out of words that feels deeply observed, richly lived…These are poems to read and re-read and to be shared, and they are as beautiful, tragic, and ancient as the place they describe.”
