About the event

Plenty looks forward to welcoming Tennessee Tech alum Peggy Perdue with the launch of her new book of poetry entitled Comfort. This is a free event, and copies of the author's new book will be available for purchase at the event. We will enjoy hearing a selection read from Peggy's book, followed by time to meet the author (and grab a signed copy!) Comfort is a collection of poems about grief, motherhood, and longing. "Comfort is a vibrant exploration of the tactile world. A reminder that memory is not just thought but, with writers as skilled as Perdue, something we can reach out and touch. Comfort is a book we need especially now in our mad world of screens and social platforms, a fight against the loneliness these things create." —Matthew Dickman, Oregon poet, contributor to The Best American Poetry 2022, and author of Husbandry Peggy now lives in Oregon, but will be traveling back to Cookeville to celebrate the book's launch.
