FutureCycle Press Publishes Dana Wildsmith's Christmas in Bethlehem
Written in advent-calendar style, the poems cover the Bethlehem of Jesus' birth and the author's home in Bethlehem, Georgia. Includes the complete musical score to "Forever," composed by F. Wm. Sherrill.
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:
Wildsmith is the author of four collections of poetry and has recently completed a novel. 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.
