‘Alphabet Year’ author to sign collection Nov. 11 at Browseabout

November 10, 2017

Devon Miller-Duggan will be appearing at 4 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 11, at Browseabout Books to read from her latest poetry collection, “Alphabet Year.” Afterward, Miller-Duggan will be available to answer questions and sign copies of “Alphabet Year.”

One rainy afternoon at the beach, Devon found herself with a bag of children's plastic ABC sand molds and a copy of Twyla Tharp's book on creativity. She reached into the bag, pulled out a letter and wrote a word that began with that letter in the margin of a piece of notebook paper, and kept going until she had the first words of 26 lines, then she wrote a 26-line poem. It was fun, so she did it again the next day. By the time the 26 properly ordered abecedarian poems were done, there was a spreadsheet to keep everything straight, and the project finally felt done.
