MURPHY, N.C. - Sept. 8, 2013 - PRLog -- FutureCycle Press announces the publication of Christmas in Bethlehem, a chapbook of poems by SIBA nominee and GAYA winner Dana Wildsmith. This collection brings the reader back once more to Wildsmith’s family farm in Bethlehem, Georgia, a farm introduced through Wildsmith’s earlier poetry collection, One Good Hand, and her environmental memoir, Back to Abnormal.

There is a poem for each day of advent in this book, beginning with poems set in the biblical Bethlehem, and then moving in time and place to Wildsmith’s Christmases in Bethlehem, Georgia. (The photo on the cover is the author's home.) The book is appropriately rounded out by the musical score based on one of the poems in the book. Composed by F. Wm. (Bill) Sherrill, a performance of the work can be viewed on YouTube:

She has served as Artist-in-Residence for Grand Canyon National Park, as Writer-in-Residence for the Island Institute in Sitka, Alaska, and is a Fellow of the Hanbidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences. Wildsmith teaches English Literacy through Lanier Technical College.

Christmas in Bethlehem is now available in paperback from Amazon.com and through FutureCycle Press's website, www.futurecycle.org. A Kindle edition will be released later this year.
