"The Poet Laureate of People Who Hate Poetry" is a new book of poetry by local poet and writer Kathy Skaggs.

In a review for Midwest Book Reviews, Laurel Johnson said this about the book:

"My husband is a native of the Kentucky mountains, a true hater of poetry and all things literary. Without my knowledge, he read this little book and loved it. He shook it in my face and said, 'You ... better write a good review of this book because it's SPECIAL.' He's right. This book is special in so many ways I can't express adequately in a review."

The book is available online at www.thetimegarden.com/produce.htm or by mail by sending a check for $6.50 to Time Barn Books, 529 Barrywood Drive, Nashville Tenn. 37220-1636.

Skaggs lives in the Maple Community of Taylor County.
