Third Thursday Book Launch – The Color After Green – Randy Spencer

August 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Praise for the book:

“Randy Spencer has a keen eye for the natural world and he

possesses the vivid language that allows his readers to share

in seeing the world anew. The Color After Green is a

book I greatly admire.”

–Ron Rash


“In poem after gorgeous poem Randy Spencer reminds us

of the catastrophe human carelessness is on the brink

of producing. The power of [his] language simultaneously

to delight and frighten is at its peak in this collection.”

–Susan Ludvigson


“Randy Spencer’s The Color After Green brims with the

‘dimpled symmetries’ of human expression and the

dynamic, surprising landscapes from which the poet takes a

lifetime of soundings. These intelligent, compelling

poems sing of a living engagement with the natural

world. This book is beautiful and important.”

–Tara Powell


Randy Spencer, physician, artist, and poet, was born and

grew up in coastal Virginia, much of those years in the family

home on the James River. For the last forty-plus years he has lived

in central South Carolina, the last thirty of which on a quiet cove

on Lake Murray. Poetry in this collection touches on the many

connections of the writer to the Southeast coast and to his life on

Lake Murray. They reflect on the beauty and complexity of

nature, and reveal some of Man’s foolish, often selfish, attitudes and

behaviors that place all of it at risk. Previous publications include The

Failure of Magic and What the Body Knows.
