On November 04, 2016 from 6 PM – 8 PM at Page&Palette in Fairhope, AL writer Anne Bailey will be signing her most recent book of poetry, Nancy Marguerite’s Chopin. The chapbook is a single poem in 3 parts.

Bailey, a graduate of Barnard College at Columbia University, holds an MFA in Book Arts and an MA in Creative Writing. She is a published poet and founder of printing company, Markham Bailey LLC.

The poem explores Bailey’s relationship with her mother and the re-collecting of stories that shape the past. Bailey opens the work with images of mornings as a young girl on the piano bench sitting beside her mother, Nancy Marguerite Perrin Bailey, who often played the Chopin Preludes. Nancy Bailey was the librarian and journalism teacher at The Altamont School from 1970 – 1992, and fed poetry and literature to her daughter as well as to many former Altamont students during her career.
