“Kimberly Simms writes with eloquence and empathy about an important part of Southern history too often neglected.” --Ron Rash, Author of Serena

I have a new book of history based poetry that addresses the textile mill era, both the nostalgia for the tight knit communities and awareness for the sometimes harsh conditions after the turn of the twentieth century.
