Fantasy Author Among Those Slated To Share Poetry at Upcoming Art Opening
William Timothy Murray will read two poems at the Winterville Art Exhibition Opening Reception, October 5, 2018

"Very few authors and writers that I know of are one-trick ponies," Murray says. "Some write in several genres and forms, and others are artists, teachers, musicians, or master craftsmen. It is so nice to be recognized in this way, and an honor to be doing this reading with the other poets."
This will be Murray's first public reading of any of his poems, so he is somewhat nervous about it. He has refrained from doing any public readings at all up to this point.
"I thought this would be a good for me, so I submitted some samples. I was really surprised that I was one of the poets selected, given the caliber of poets on tap. Yes, it does take me out of my comfort zone just a tad," he says. "But I'm always a bit nervous when I'm up in front of an audience, no matter what I'm doing up there."
Murray will be reading two poems, "Letters" and "Telltales,"
The poetry reading is part of the Artist's Reception taking place on October 5 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Winterville Center for Community and Culture. Readings are expected to begin at 6:00pm. The event is free and open to the public.
