Pleased to add another George Scarbrough book to the collection. “Invitation to Kim” was a finalist for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. The East Tennessee native produced three books between 1949-1956, which each contain some of the finest southern poetry I’ve read. “Invitation to Kim” is part of his later work and was published in 1989. I have posted his poem “Postcard Woodcut” here for a sampling of his work. Thank you to @thebookeddy for this copy, signed and inscribed in Fine condition. A rare hardback copy. #georgescarbrough #invitationtokim #pulitzerprize #irispress #rarebooks #firstedition #bookcollection #bookcollecting #bookcollection #bibliophile #bookporn #bookhunting #bookstagram #modernfirsts #modernfirsteditions #finebooks #signedbooks #shelfie #southernliterature #southernlit #tennessee #appalachianlit #appalachianliterature #kentucky #northcarolina #virginia #westvirginia #appalachianpoetry https://www.instagram.com/p/CP9OU7FsEzw/?utm_medium=tumblr

Wet a line yesterday with the poet Don Johnson. Probably best know for his book “The Importance of Visible Scars,” he lives on the Watauga but we jumped across the mountain to fish the South Holston instead. I grew up fly fishing and spent a couple years after high school exploring the creeks of Cherokee National Forest and the Great Smokies. I’m not sure I recognized how spending so much time in the woods effected me. I can still remember @tennesseevalleyanglers once saying “It’s a good thing to develop a personal relationship with a body of water.” Glad to meet some more water this weekend even if it is a finicky tailgater. . . . . . . . #theimportanceofvisiblescars #donjohnson #southholstonriver #wataugariver #appalachianpoetry #flyfishing #flyfishingporn #appalachianliterature #appalachianlit #etsu #elizabethtontn #tennessee (at South Holston River) https://www.instagram.com/p/BttFXcHA5T-/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1opkzizpptq72
