Murray Dunlap Book Launch Party @ Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities
Jun 6 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Book cover by Murray Dunlap

In conjunction with The Country Bookshop, Weymouth Center is pleased to host local author and Weymouth Writer-in-Residence, Murray Dunlap on June 6th at 6:00 PM.

Join us for a launch celebration! Southern Pines resident Murray Dunlap’s book of poetry, Proof, is coming out next month and people are raving about it.

Murray’s book of poetry, Proofwill be available for sale and personalization.

Murray Dunlap is an author, artist, and poet. In 2014 he was a finalist for the American Short Story Fiction award and is a three-time nominee for the Pushcart Prize. His work has appeared in a number of publications including Virginia Quarterly Review, The Bark, The Pilot, Night Train, and PineStraw magazine. He has also spent time as the Writer-in-Residence at the Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities in Southern Pines, North Carolina.

In 2008, a man missed a red-light and every single thing about Murray Dunlap’s life changed. Because of the wreck, he was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury; spent three months in a coma, a year in a wheelchair, and then used a walker. He was a married writer about to start a new career as an English teacher, but the marriage could not survive his confusion and amnesia. When asked, he did not know he was married. After surgeries and countless doctors’ appointments and therapy sessions, Dunlap has emerged, phoenix-like, happily married and as a writer with PROOF, a new collection of poetry to be released on the tenth anniversary of the accident.

A decade ago, Dunlap began writing poetry and stories again and set a goal for himself: write one poem a day. A result of many years of perseverance, Dunlap has created an incredible work of catharsis. PROOF is an intimate journey from trauma to recovery and acceptance through love, faith, and understanding. His poetry is a first-hand account of pain, the struggles of healing, and the uncertainty of starting over. His tale celebrates the personal triumph of finding joy, love and spirituality after devastating loss. With poignantly honest and genuine poetry, Murray Dunlap captures the possible beauty, strength and transcendence of tragedy.
