In observance of Black History Month, the Calhoun City Public Library will host an evening with Patricia Neely-Dorsey Thursday, February 7, at 6:30 p.m.
The Library is at 113 East Burkitt Ave.
Neely-Dorsey is a 1982 graduate of Tupelo High School. She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology in Boston, Massachusetts.
After living for almost 20 years in Memphis, working in the mental health field, she returned to her hometown in August 2007.
Her first book of poetry, “Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia-A Life in Poems”, was published in February 2008. Her second book, “My Magnolia Memories and Musings In Poems” was published in 2012. She calls both books “a celebration of the south and all things southern”.
Patricia currently lives in Tupelo with her husband, James, son, Henry, and Miniature Schnauzer, Happy.
Last February, Patricia delighted patrons with poetry from her first book, Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia-A Life in Poems. Since that time she has published her new book, “My Magnolia Memories and Musings-In Poems”.
This year’s program promises to be even better. Following the program, Patricia will sign copies of her books, and everyone may enjoy some light refreshments, sponsored by the FRIENDS of the Calhoun City Public Library.
