Utah State Poetry Society Poet of the Year Candy Lish Fowler will visit Dixie State University Eccles Fine Arts Concert Hall to present a book concert for her new work On a Road that Knows Me. Lish is the annual Utah State Poetry Society original manuscript winner.
Judge January Gill O’Neil describes Fowler’s book as a stylish collection where there is no easy way into the truth; It is a personal, sometimes painful journey. But it is often marked with moments of light, vibrant and dynamic. This allows us to walk along-through family, music, culture and travel. These poems stayed with me says O’Neil, Executive Director of the Poetry Society of Massachusetts and Professor of English at Salem State University.
Candy Lish Fowler grew up in Granger, Utah graduating as the Sterling Scholar in English. She attended the University of Utah as a Presidential Scholar where she majored in Dance and minored in English.
