Lineup change for Poetry on Brick Street, Aug. 6, 2015

Because of a recent hospitalization for heart issues, Joan Colby is forced to cancel her appearance at Poetry on Brick Street this Thursday (Aug. 6) at SullivanMunce Cultural Center, 225 W. Hawthorne St., Zionsville.

Replacing Colby will be John Cardwell, author of the recently published A Good Road Home: A Collection of Poems and Short Stories. His reading will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Here is a book description that appears on the Indiana Business Journal website

The Good Road Home is a book of poems and short stories by John Cardwell that delves into the interplay between place and the people and animals that live there. The book balances hard edged realism, sensitivity and good humor. It tells stories about life in Tipton County, Indiana in the heart of the rural Midwest in the 20th and 21st centuries. Through the characters in the book we learn of triumphs and tragedies, and much about ourselves. The book challenges stereotypes while expressing strong views regarding our Native American heritage, the natural environment, and how our acts as humans may affect the future.

Although The Good Road Home is the first book of poems and stories to be authored by John Cardwell, its contents will hardly be a surprise to persons that know him. Since 2009, John has been writing poetry and short stories and his work has previously appeared in the Tipton Poetry Journal, Spaces to Create, and the Blue Collar Review.

Coincidentally, this is Colby's second cancellation for a Brick Street Poetry event. She was scheduled to appear n 2014, but a broken bone forced her to cancel that event.
