“I came to Athens for my undergrad and never left.”

“I first visited Athens when my high school marching band attended a halftime performance at an O.U. football game.”

“I live on the Westside, grow herbs and sweet potatoes in patio pots.”

“I left Athens after my undergrad studies and scratch my head as to why I so often think of my time there, daydream about returning someday.”

Sound familiar? Athens, Ohio. Many who come, stay. Those who leave can never quite set aside the pull, the echo that reverberates no matter how far they roam – CASA, the Burrito Buggy, the Bike Path, New-2-You, bricks, church bells at noon, your favorite local or professor. Over one hundred poets, essayists, storytellers, songwriters and fine artists have come together in this very special collection. The work is raw, honest and steeped in all things Athens; from the foothills to the stadium, uptown to throughout the county. Join us as we celebrate all that is the heart and hearth of Athens, Ohio. – Kari Gunter-Seymour, Athens Poet Laureate
