Ann Humphries’ debut collection of poems, An Eclipse and a Butcher, is anchored by poems about the solar eclipse, which serve as the perfect metaphor for the blindness experienced by the poet. But Humphries tells us that “blindness provides insight.” … Humphries is a survivor, and we are so lucky she has chosen to share her words and her wisdom.

Marjory Wentworth, former South Carolina Poet Laureate

Excerpts from attendees of Ann’s virtual book launch:

Ann, it is wonderful to see you being celebrated for your wonderful gift to us all. I loved your courage and insight as you put personal words to both small and monumental events, many of which are common to us all.

Lenore P.

Ann, you are a beacon of light, and I don’t think anyone here would disagree!

Christina X.

You are a reporter … always looking for a story…and encouraging each of us to tell a story in a well wrapped treasured collection of words…that’s what your poems do for me!

Cynthia C.

Congratulations, Ann, and this has been a wonderful event! The fantastic attendance is testament to your reach into your community!
