Poetry Echoes Though The Ages

Searching the history of poetry is to discover a language connecting people throughout the centuries. Poetry appears on records of most literate cultures and can be found on monoliths, rune stones and stele. Joree Williams has studied different poetic forms from many countries, and has chosen examples to help you as you search for your poetic voice.

Some poems were selected as n example of the sameness in all societies; while others were chosen as they have no counterpart in any other country. For students of poetry, this s a useful learning and reference book.

This book contains an impressive variety of poems, presented in many styles, with each structure broken down and explained. There are examples of narrative, free verse, didactic, lyric, prose, blank verse, allegory and more. For readers who enjoy poetry for its own sake, the compositions by Joree Williams are not only filled with wisdom's and passionate emotion, but you will also find yourself getting lost within many of the pieces. Thoroughly entertaining as well as educational!

19.99 perfect bound 170 pages!

Freddy Will

Freddy Will is an American rapper, producer, song/screenwriter and author born in Freetown, Sierra Leone and raised in Monrovia, Liberia in West Africa. His early years were spent playing guitar in church and re-writing Bible stories into plays for his local theatre. During the civil war in Liberia in 1989, he was exposed to violence there and he escaped the genocide by defending himself on his journey to Sierra Leone, his country of birth. For years to come, Freddy will be haunted by those experiences...



Luck Brothers

Since the 1980's Tim Gleeson and Art Austin have been performing, writing and recording together to create a unique sound that can be heard on the radio as well as in person throughout the region.

"Mojo In My Coffee," from their debut album Coming Back Home, is often featured on WXPN's blues show.



Rikki Tachman

I'm 21 and I was born in Ogden, UT. I lived there for 12 years then moved to Indiana and I have been here ever since. I've been playing piano since I was 7 and percussion since 6th grade...needless to say music is my life. I started writing songs when I was about 11. I wrote my first song for a play my sister and I had written and haven't been able to stop since then! =D

Calling Out Closer

Calling Out Closer: a reliance on what God has done. Throughout the past, the future and the present we trust in His faithfulness.

We had the pleasure of meeting Kevin during a casual visit to Crossroads Coffee House in Roxboro, Pennsylvania. Kevin's music is reminiscent of the lyrical and melodic value of music from Ben Harper.
